Analía la Rubia
Analia comes from Argentina's second tango capital, the port city of Rosario. She founded the project Las Chirusas there, which has become an integral part of Rosario's tango scene. Since 2004 she has concentrated entirely on her work as a tango DJ, going by the name of La Rubia, puro Tango Argentino. Her knowledge and intimate relationship with the tango has enabled her to develop a personal style and a unique sound. Through traditional DJing, with tandas and cortinas, La Rubia plays between the dancers’ emotions and the deeper history of tango. She makes you dance with your soul.
In almost 250 towns and 38 countries all over the world, from America to Europe and Asia, people have danced to her music, and other DJs look to her as a model.
Trud has been DJing in Oslo / Norway and around Europe since 2013. Her main focus is on the Golden Age, with some tandas from the early 1930s and from the 1950s / 1960s in between. The musical choices Trud makes depend on the dynamic in the room, and she always finds it very exciting to see what happens during a set! She will always seek to create a varied and balanced selection when she DJs.
Inspired by his love for the dance and the music, Raúl has been regularly djing at tango events since 2008. He plays danceable, traditional tangos, his main goal being the enjoyment of the dancers. His selection of music shows his musicality, his experience and detailed knowledge of his collection.
Raúl is strongly attached to the traditional tango music and plays pieces of the época de oro with some excursions to the finest pieces of the 30s and 50s. He makes sure to adapt his choice of tandas not only to the location as well as the type and duration of the event but also to the level of the dancers, the atmosphere and energy on the dance floor.
Milonguera for 23 years, I started to music in Encuentros and Milongas since 2007 When I djing I consider several factors such as the level of dance, the moment of the encuentro, the emotion of the dancers the energy of the dance floor. To djing I use the different orchestras, both of the 40, the huge Golden Age, as well as some good musically precious records from the age of 30, punctually some record of 50, linking them correctly to maintain good energy on the track. But above all I prioritize at all times, share the emotion with the dancers. That is the basis of my musicalization, to get excited together.
