Milonga “Gricel”

February 28, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - March 24, 2023 @ 10:13 pm EST

Our monthly milonga on the last Wednesday of every month. Why “Gricel”? It’s an Argentine love story about a forbidden love. It became a song and I’m sure you’ve all danced to this song. Fortunately, they ended up together and happy. To end the Month of Love, February, we will immerse ourselves into the meaning of this story. We will dance it and sing it.


lyrics by José María Contursi

I should never have thought
that I could win your heart—
but still I searched for you
until one day I found you
and I stunned you with my kisses
I didn’t care how virtuous you were…
Your fragile crystal dream
shattered when I left
and I never, ever returned…
How bitter was your sorrow!

“Never ever forget me,
your dear sweet Gricel!”
You said as you kissed
that likeness of Christ
and now that I am going mad
because I haven’t forgotten you,
you don’t even remember me…
Gricel, Gricel!
