Petrodollars Tango


A tango with undertones of what ails Argentina; economic, moral, ethical and governance collapse.
Enjoy the dance and the message behind the dance.

They Yellow Trotter’s Flight


Przewalski’s horse (pronounced / sh’e-val-skee.) Known as Equus ferus przewalskii or Dzungarian horse, is a rare and endangered subspecies of wild horse native to the steppes of central Asia, specifically Mongolia. At one time extinct in the wild, it has been reintroduced to its native habitat in Mongolia at the Khustain Nuruu National Park, Takhin Tal Nature Reserve, and Khomiin Tal.

Most “wild” horses today, such as the American Mustang or the Australian Brumby, are actually feral horses descended from domesticated animals that escaped and adapted to life in the wild. In contrast, Przewalski’s horse has never been domesticated and remains a truly wild animal today. ┬áThe Przewalski’s horse is considered the only remaining truly wild horse in the world.

This piece revolves around the return of the wild horse from near extinction to a new world after many years of being away from its natural habitat. The present appears as a dream as it struggles to replace what it knew about this world. And the yellow little horse wants to fly again through the high steppes of Asia, despite the modern world.

The background music is very particular and native to this area which includes “throat singing” by Huun Huur Tu. Throat singing is a form of vocalization in which the singer manipulates multiple notes at once — the resonances (or formants) created as air travels from the lungs through the vocal folds and out of the lips to produce a melody.
