If someone has just created the tango genre in 2010s, it might very well sound like Tango Spleen!
Everybody should be talking about Poesia! Here is why...
Tangos from Sweden! With a little bit of jazz... but not too much!
This weeks' tanda features four tangos recorded by Alfredo De Angelis c. Oscar Larroca in the 1940s.
Tango Bardo takes a shot at Miguel Caló in their newest 'disco tanda`, Ella y Caló.
Conjunto Berretin's first recording was in 2004. Here they come again, nearly 20 years later, with a treat of an album!
These three instrumental milongas are guaranteed to swallow you whole ... and spit you out after seven minutes, forever imprinting a silly smile on your face.
It's easy to find modern covers of the better known hits of Juan D'Arienzo - primarily from his Golden Age era. His career spanned three additional decades, however, and the new album by Los Herederos del Compás contains several songs you have probably never heard in their original form. Plus a few new ones!
Back in 2013, I started writing a Windows app to help me while DJing. I called it Embrace then, and after a prolonged pause, I am bringing it back as "Bewitched."
The album Juntos by the Solo Tango Orquesta was released in November 2020, and it only made it to my desk recently. I regret every minute I missed this by.
Full album reviewed inside with all the music courtesy of Spotify!
I give you my first "progressive tango mix" for 2021, as I would like to call these, a sample of my current tastes and inclinations.
I have wanted to write about Alex Krebs' tango projects in the past, and never had a good excuse until now. It feel a bit odd to write about releases made 10 or more years ago. Fortunately, the Bandcamp re-release gave me a good excuse, and here you have it.
Marisol Martinez's crew has published a new EP and it's just as lovely as the first one released just a few weeks ago.
This blog has so far been covering my discoveries of contemporary tango. It may appear that I only care about the present but it is not so: I am deeply invested in the tango tradition.
Your humble DJ set out to mix vals tandas out of different orchestras, and you won't believe what happened next 😉
Hello, I am Tom.
I organize and DJ at milongas in Prague and have performed in Germany, Poland, and Japan.
Here I write about music I love with the focus on promoting new music for dancing.
Sie ist wieder Grün. Nach 14 Tagen Rot hat die Warn-Kachel in meinem Smartphone auf „Niedriges Risiko“ geschaltet. Glück gehabt, aber auch verdient, find ich. In […]
Gerade habe ich einen kleinen Rundgang auf den üblich-verdächtigen Tangoblogseiten gemacht und bin dadurch auf ein echtes Kleinod gestoßen. Angefangen hat es mit Melinas Seite. Da auf meiner Löffel-Liste noch immer ein Encuentro-Besuch steht, habe ich mir dann den etwas älteren Post zum Thema Encuentros 2020 nochmal durchgelesen. Sie schreibt, daß sie nur solche Veranstaltungen […]
Hace un rato la Legislatura porteña aprobó el proyecto de Ley de fomento a las milongas, que establece un fondo de ayuda a los distintos espacios para el baile social del tango y algunas exenciones impositivas. El proyecto fue una iniciativa de la Asociación de Organizadores de Milongas vehiculizado dentro del parlamento local por la […]
January 1, 1935 — November 18, 2023 I received a phone call this afternoon from Rosina Lavalle. We knew one another in Lo de Celia. We both enjoyed dancing with Alberto. She called his daughter regularly to find out how he was doing and learned of his passing. This is a video of Rosina and […]
