Greetings from the Tango Frostbite festival in Helsinki Finland! I had the honor to play the lovely opening milonga of the festival and this is one of the tandas of my set. In the five and a half hour milonga I played four milonga tandas, which were a slower Canaro tanda as the first one, followed later by milongas from Troilo and Laurenz and then as the last milonga tanda I played this one. I chose very classic milongas for all tandas and I really like to keep it that way especially when I play bigger festival milongas like this. Keep it classy and strong and don't be afraid of uptempo milongas! Actually "No hay tierra como la mia" sounds more uptempo than it eventually is. But it's a great strong start for a milonga tanda. Be sure to check out the Lomuto version of the song (Spotify / Deezer), which is probably even better!
