Tanda of the Week 11 / 2012 -
Francisco Canaro (instrumentals)

1. Francisco Canaro - "Retintín" 1938
2. Francisco Canaro - "Fiebre" 1938
3. Francisco Canaro - "Por tu querer" 1938
4. Francisco Canaro - "Ciertos amores" 1938

This weeks guest dj tanda is from Mauro Berardi from Italy and it's another Canaro tanda but this time instrumentals. Mauro did an excellent job playing in the opening "Icebreaker" milonga of our Tango Frostbite festival in Helsinki Finland. Unfortunately "Retintín" was the only song available on Spotify or Deezer. Notice that Canaro recorded the song many times and this is the 1938 version. You may try finding the other songs for purchace at the Buenos Aires Tango Club for example.

Mauro has a background in classical music and has been an active tango dancer since 2002. He has been a dj since 2005 and is a resident dj of the two most important milongas in Rome: Milonga del Barrio and Milonga della Stazione. He has also been a dj at many international festivals and marathons and a popular guest dj in milongas around Europe. His style is traditional but very personal: "I like tandas with orquestas from 30's and 40's and some from late 40's and 50's. There are no rules during my dj sets. Only the flow and the energy of the floor are important!"
