The table below lists all the performances by Noelia Hurtado and Carlitos Espinoza that I was able to find online. For most performances, I was able to find the dates in which they took place. For a few performances, however, the dates are only approximate. These are listed in italics.
Update (April, 2015): I no longer have the time to keep this list updated, but I encourage visitors to post links to new videos in the comments section below (as many have done already).
Update (October, 2015): Okay, by popular demand I have decided to resume work on this list, and hope to gradually list all performances missing since the last update.
Ever wondered how some of today’s top performers danced before they became so famous? What follows is a selection of clips I was able to dig up after doing some detective work on YouTube. Feel free to send further suggestions by email or as comments to this post. Enjoy!

My choice for this week is ‘La mulateada’ (Carlos Di Sarli, 1941). I reviewed 15 performances. (I was disappointed to see so many couples dancing to the Sexteto Milonguero version, which is of incomparably lower artistic quality.)
Noelia Hurtado and Carlitos Espinoza–the couple everyone loves to love–gave a wonderful exhibition in London yesterday. I brought my camera and recorded their performance, which is now publicly available on YouTube. The footage is slightly out of focus, owing to a damaged lens, but you can still see the dancers quite well, especially if you set the resolution to HD.
