I started out bringing my computer to Jueves Practica – to play music for others to practice too. 4 years later and I now seem to have 2 residencies. La Pequeña Milonga Azul and Lewes Milonga (part of Tango Revolution).

I have DJ’d at one of my favorite Milongas (The Station Milonga – Hove) for Brighton Dancing as well as being asked to step in for Claudia Ohde on occasion.

Traditional Tango Music is where my heart is and I love to play with a themed cortina section. I tend to play what I like to dance too and this is generally well known and dance-able Tango’s, excitable Vals and bonkers Milonga’s. Some of my favorites are the earlier years – just before the Golden Age and occasionally I will delve into this little honey-pot of sweetness.

There is still so much to learn and and I profess to still being a beginner in this – but I love it, the sounds, the trills, the feelings and the hidden gems that make you want to dance dance dance.
