Santa Maria del Carmine, Tango & Etc.

Hot and humid here. Not much out of the ordinary in that respect. It's really too hot to even think about using the computer during the day. In fact, I've been on relatively light computer rations all this week. When I do use the computer, I try to limit my session to no more than one hour. I don't want to melt this beast...

Vito received a couple vaccination injections on Wednesday. He seems completely recovered from the experience. We heard him cry more strongly than we had previously experienced, but I suppose we're in for many more firsts in both good and bad categories...

Putignano - San Stefano - Le Illuminarie - Installation ILast weekend started a two-week stretch of excitement and festivals in Putignano. On Sunday evening, we went out to celebrate the festival of Santa Maria del San Carmine with the town.Putignano - San Stefano - Le Illuminarie If you go back to last year, you can read even more about it and find more photos of the happenings. The small picture on the left shows the lights for Santa Maria del Carmine and the small picture on the right shows the lights for San Stefano (Saint Stephen). Saint Stephen is Putignano's patron saint. I'm not sure why. Apparently, there is, at least, one of his bones (his skull?) here in town somewhere. I haven't verified this information, but let's go with it for now...

The highlight of Sunday's events was the climactic tango performance at the town hall by Hector Ulisses Passerella & Ensemble. Traditionally, a local orchestra performs in the small square near the church, but the event organizers thought they would try something with a little more pizzazz. The ensemble not only played tango music, but also featured a couple of dancers and a woman who recited poetry. Watch a short sample of the event now...

The name of the performance was Vi Racconto Il Tango... which translates to something like "I tell you the tango..." and presented a more historical and informative perspective on tango music and its origins and development. I don't think anyone went home displeased.
