This week's tanda delivers a powerful lyrical narrative for the mature audience.
I put together a tanda of milongas from the 2007 album of Esteban Morgado, "Milongueros".
This week's tanda is a journey into the dark - for the prepared milonguero.
Alberto Castillo, made famous by his collaboration with Ricardo Tanturi, had an enormously long career. His vocal expressions were unique and entertaining without getting in the way of a good ronda.
This mix progresses from a very romantic starting point towards a place that is somehow more solid, if you will; it's not a weepy tanda. It is lyrical but also quite masculine.
Tanturi's instrumentals from 1940s are one of my staples. I love the beats and the energy. So will your dancers!

I began this glorious year 2020 with an ode to milongas. Continuing in the same spirit, I give you lovely milonga duets from late 1950s in the form of a mixed tanda.
This Di Sarli tanda from the 1940s is designed for the intimate enjoyment of those who have nothing to prove to the world around them. Its energy is contained within the embrace and does not radiate outside.
This week's tanda features light-footed, easygoing covers of beloved classics that have been stripped down of pathos and delivered as objects of pure enjoyment and fun.
