Luxe Milonga — the new all-night milonga in Portland! Come join Remanda Xiang and Jenna Rohrbacher at this fresh, modern, and fun event!

Socially conscious hip-hop artist Momo Smitt fell in love with Argentine tango in October of 2009. With an extensive background in music but no experience with partner dancing of any kind, he quickly jumped headfirst into studying, enjoying, and writing music about the dance. “From the hole there formed a hold in tango/ Gotta grab and master this craft of the soul/ Gotta open my own/ To this deepest abyss of bliss/ I’ve gotta find it, at least just an inch of it.” He raps in his song titled “A Hold In Tango,” a powerful track detailing the heartbreak leading up to his discovery of tango as well as his frustration and success making the transition from open to close embrace. Dancing for many hours everyday and performing his original “Tango Raps” at various festivals around the U.S., he shares his enthusiasm with a childlike innocence through clever rhyme schemes and danceable rhythms.
