El Tango Club - DJ Ricardo Oria

For our first El Tango Club 2017, we have one of Edinburgh's favourite DJs: Mr Ricardo Oria! 

Join us for an evening of fantastic music, warm embraces and great atmosphere.
Soft drinks served, however, feel free to BYOB. 
Special baked goodies will be served!

Entry: £8/£5 students and OAP

DJ Ricardo about himself:

"I am a tango dancer, first and foremost. The dance of tango is my passion, and of course that is moved by the music. When I play music for others, I think first as a dancer. From my first years as a teenager dancing in Buenos Aires, I was fascinated by the music and collected as many CDs as I could. My first experiences playing music for others were when I started to teach in Buenos Aires and discovered the effect different tracks had in my classes. I really started DJing in Edinburgh at our regular Monday practica back in 2002, and discovered that I really enjoyed it. Since then I have played music at our practicas and milongas and occasionally at other events. 
I search for authenticity, elegance and coherence in my music set, including the‘’Guardia Vieja’’, the‘’Golden Age’’ and more contemporary tango orchestras too."

Venue: Marchmont St Giles Parish Church, 1A Kilgraston Road, EH9 2DW, Edinburgh.

El Tango Club - with Guest DJ Céline Devez

Céline offers traditional music with Tandas and Cortinas from periods between the 1920's to the late 50's. The more important thing for her is to feel what is happening on the dance floor, and to adapt the musical selection according to the mood. Her motivation is to keep the energy of the ball intact by encouraging the emotion of the group, and intimacy of each dancer.
