Our magnificent DJs for Summer Tango

Elena Zaléz  From Argentina -Elena has DJ’d in Buenos Aires, Japan, across Europe and Australia. Inspired by the music played at the traditional milongas in Buenos Aires, Elena is a Dj who chooses her songs such that musicality, lyrics and poetry melt into a romantic dream with the scent of other times. Each tanda is part of a bigger journey that evolves over the night, visiting orchestras, feelings and flavours, sometimes funny, sometimes melancholic, always authentic.

José Arganaras Jose grew up in Argentina listening to tango from his parents’ record player. He has been dancing tango for many years, and DJing at milongas organized by himself and friends in Bariloche, Patagonia. His love for tango is divided: he is both a dancer and a musician. He likes to combine these aspects when he can – he established and directed a tango sextet in Argentina and currently plays bandoneon with The Melbourne Tango Orchestra. He has travelled extensively to “encuentros de tangueros” across Argentina to hear the new wave of contemporary tango orchestras reviving the live music tradition, and he loves to throw a few newer tandas in between all the classic orchestras. His personality as a DJ is energetic and at times dramatic, and prefers music that is fun and rich in details. His ultimate goal is to provide a great night for all and to see smiles at the end of the embrace.

I am passionate about tango music – in fact I am almost obsessive about the music, and constantly on a never-ending mission for new music for dancers to enjoy.” I am obsessed with digitizing the vinyls and remove the static noise yet preserving the original sound quality.
