"El arce"

My approach to tango originally came through an interest in argentine music, first the folk music, "folklore" and later on the tango cancions. After beginning to dance my interest moved on to the variability of the classical dance music. I started DJ-ing based on a large and comprehensive collection of music, something that can be seen in my DJ-ing. When organizing a milonga I try to move during the evening from earlier simpler music, from around 1926 up to around 1938, to more complex forms, creating a narrative with various styles of music that applies both to musical interests and different styles of dancing. My milongas usually contain at least couple of tandas by D'Arienzo, Di Sarli, Troilo, Pugliese, and Canaro, usually interspersed by tandas by Tanturi, D'Agustino and Caló. In between I like to include other artists from my collection, suchas Biagi, Rodriguez, Donato, Firpo, De Angelis, or Fresedo, all according to how they relate to the mood of the milonga.
