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.
