I had a great weekend in Germany playing in Nou Mitte in Berlin on Friday as well as the 2. Viento Norte Festivalito Milonguero in Eckernförde on Saturday. Viento Norte was an Encuentro of about 180 dancers all dedicated to the art of perfecting the ronda and dancing in small space. It was my second encuentro that I went to and in both cases the dancing, floorcraft and atmosphere were exceptional. And it is not only great to experience it on the floor but it is also a great pleasure to play for such a crowd. The encuentros are definitely something I'm looking forward to participate and Dj at more in the future.
Although this, for me quite exceptional, tanda doesn't really represent my set too well, I decided to share it here on the blog since a few people came to ask me what was the last song of the tanda. I played only one tanda of early 30's tango and decided to combine some of my favorites from that time period. This whole tanda can be seen as a variation of a tanda of various orchestras I had previously posted on TOTW28/2012. This time Carlos Lafuente is joined by Alberto Gomez as a singer. The last song is "Manón", which has been recorded as well by Osvaldo Fresedo in 1942. The Fresedo version is not that bad at all until it gets ruined by the hammond taking the song from the bedroom straight to the elevators of a shopping mall.
