Tango Digital Archive / Archivo Digital del Tango




I will be moving to Berlin this week and I am organizing a farewell milonga at our new dance studio in Helsinki. The proceeds of the evening will be donated to support the work of the Tango Digital Archive (ARG) that I had the pleasure of working with in Buenos Aires earlier this year, donating my time and basic video editing skills to make this video. This unique initiative needs the help of tango lovers worldwide and organizing a special milonga and donating the proceeds could be one of the ways to get your community to help the work of the Tango Digital Archive..

Tanda of the Week 40 / 2012 -
Francisco Canaro y Charlo - 1929


This weeks guest dj tanda comes from DJ Barry (www.tangocats.co.uk) from Bedford, England.

Barry explains:
"I am particularly fond of music from the Guardia vieja and the combination of Francisco Canaro/Charlo is for me one of the high points of the period and I enjoy the inventive use of guitar on Mimosa."

Unfortunately these songs are not available yet on Spotify or Deezer. You may try finding them for purchace at the Buenos Aires Tango Club for example.

I have previously posted a tanda with Lomuto and Charlo and you can hear him sing also in these tandas from Orquesta Típica Victor and Carabelli
