About the artists:
Mira Barakat is a classically-trained singer, and has been singing Tango since 2010. She performs regularly around the Bay, most frequently with guitarist Scott O’Day. Scott and Mira offer danceable tango sets for milongas as well as purely musical sets for concerts, house concerts, and other events.
Scott O’Day is a local Bay Area favorite for tango music, appearing regularly in concert and at the milonga. He attended La Escuela de Música Popular de Avellaneda, a tango music school in Buenos Aires, and has performed with several tango groups all around the U.S., Canada, and Argentina to popular acclaim. Currently, O’Day is also the instructor for the Community Music Center Tango Ensemble in San Francisco.
Sonja Riket enjoyed a long professional modern dance career in Europe and the USA before Tango found her in SF! She is faculty at SF Community Music Center for Argentine Tango Dance and Embodiment and Expression for Musicians. Sonja is a Certified Feldenkrais® and Body-Mind Centering® Teacher.
