Here's a new milonga tanda I played in the saturday afterparty of the 4th edition of Helsinki International Tango Festival - Tango Frostbite. I find that all of these songs, from three different orchestras, have a similar mid-40's sound, energy and danceability to them and go well together. When I played the tanda I left out the speech intro from the De Angelis milonga.
I played from 03:30 to 07:00 following Punto y Branca, who played the Grand Milonga of the festival just before. I had decided that since I have time for only two milonga tandas, the first one will be more uptempo, unknown and challenging, while the second one later into the morning hours will be slower, more known and less challenging (it was Canaro).
What do you think of this tanda? All comments are appreciated. Unfortunately the De Angelis milonga was not available on Deezer. ...and the version of Zapatos is too fast on Spotify/iTunes. Get it from TangoTunes.
