|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.
The beautiful, year-round air-conditioned studio where we tango!
