Alex Krebs: Coffeeshop Conversations #111 - Portland's Tango King

By TOM D'ANTONI // The Tango craze has not abated. Alex is a major factor.

Hi there. Tom D’Antoni in World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation.

With me today is Alex Krebs, Tango teacher, Tango dancer and proprietor of Tango Berretin, his own Tango studio since 2001.

He’s pretty much been Mr. Tango in Portland for a long time.

And that’s Argentine Tango only. No other type of Tangos need apply. What’s the difference. That’s something we’re going to discover. You’ll also find out what a milonga is and why you might want to attend one.

And what about his Balkan ensemble Krebsic Orkestar?

He brought his very well-behaved young sons with him.

The tune at the end is "Alt Mission."  Alex says, "All the music was composed by Andrew Oliver and me and lyrics by Kitty Lambkins (aka Megan Haupt)."

Let’s talk with Alex Krebs

 

"Alt Mission."  All the music was composed by Andrew Oliver and me and lyrics by Kitty Lambkins (aka Megan Haupt).
