Tanda of the Week 26 / 2012 -
Various orchestras - milongas

Dj Antti Suniala - Atelieri O. Haapala

1. Francisco Lomuto / Fernando Díaz - "No hay tierra como la mía" 1939
2. Edgardo Donato / H. Lagos, R. Gavioli - "Sentir del corazón" 1940
3. Francisco Canaro / Ernesto Famá - "Después de quererla tanto" 1940'm sometimes a bit hesitant to start a milonga tanda very strong. Instead I start the tandas a bit slow and increase the tempo of the songs towards the end. Not in this case. From the first notes of the first song the dancers will know that this tanda means business. And often (again when time is right) the stronger the first milonga the faster the dancers run to the floor.

Visiting Buenos Aires I heard many dj's mixing orchestras in the vals and milonga tandas and I'm trying to do more of the same now. This tanda is so far untested in the milongas as I just made it up but I think it would work well when the time and atmosphere is right. (Edit: The tanda works great and got great comments from dancers)

Unfortunately the last milonga from Canaro is not available on Spotify or Deezer.

  1. Thanks for the milongas. It passed the test. I couldn't stay seated. You had me dancing around my living room.
