We aim to create the atmosphere of a Traditional Buenos Aires Milonga: featuring Golden Age tango music, played in tandas with cortinas...encouraging good floorcraft and the use of tango etiquette, including the cabeceo.
Andrew and Michele are also very experienced Traditional Tango DJ's having provided the music for literally 100's of Milongas over 15 years. They are available to DJ at your Tango event if you wish.
