OUR MUSIC

The Music at Our Milonga          

Musical fads come and go.

We seek, find, and play the best of the finest living composers, bands, and orchestras of today, too; the age of the music is irrelevant.

But we are not alone in noticing that today you will hardly ever hear most of the once-popular new tunes that played at milongas just 5 years ago. On the other hand, almost everywhere, you will always hear some of the music that played at milongas as far back as 70 years ago.

Why is that?

Some art is timeless, and some art has a limited life time.

We play timeless pieces of music, old or new, but not music that's hip today yet sure to disappear in a few years. How can we tell the future? We don't have to; the music speaks for itself!

Troilo, Di Sarli, Pugliese, D'Arienzo, Fresedo, De Caro, Piazzolla, Biagi, De Angelis, Tanturi, Lomuto, Donato, D'Agostino, and tens of other orchestras and their revered singers have lasted because their music is timeless. Add to this the modern gems like Color Tango and you have literally thousands of pieces from which to choose for a balanced repertoire of a memorable milonga.

Of course having a seasoned DJ with a solid musical education and with knowledge of the orchestras, singers, and history of the tango music also helps.

We select each set carefully from our treasure trove of about 5000 (and growing) total tangos, milongas, and valses, and we repeatedly receive compliments form the most discriminating of tango listeners and dancers visiting us from all over the globe: musicians, tango professionals, seasoned milonga organizers, and equally important, from among our own tango dancers.


Come dance with us; we're waiting for you.




Who is a "Brave" Tango Dancer?

We borrowed this definition of "Brave" tango dancer from Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne, the preeminent tango dancers of the world today.
They say the "Brave" tango dancer is the one who is ready to stand up to the tango in its entirety.

We like to add this: The brave tango dancer is the dancer whose desire to learn more of the dance is always superior to his or her ego. The one who knows, beyond giving lip-service to the fact, that the tango is infinite and that the dancer will never be. The moment a dancer's ego becomes stronger than his or her desire to learn more of the tango, the tango itself starts reciprocating this change in attitude, and progress becomes hampered if not reversed.

"Brave" Beginners:
ALWAYS some of the material in a "Tango for the Brave" class is readily accessible to "Brave" beginners. Much of it is challenging for beginners, but it is never inaccessible to the "Brave" beginner! Those beginners who are not afraid even of making a fool out of themselves once a while, we'll take their hands and walk them into the tango world as far as they like to go, as fast as they can keep up.

"Brave" Non-beginners:
ALWAYS every experienced tango dancer will be challenged by some of the material in a "Tango for the Brave" class. We take the dance seriously in this type of class, but not ourselves so much.



Are you the "Brave" tango dancer?
Come dance with us; we're waiting for You!
