Fredag kväll: Jenny
Tango has been Jennys passion since the late 1990s; dancing as a follower and leader, teaching, dj-ing and working to spread curiosity about tango music. “The last ten years it became clear that I experience connection strongest in close-embrace dancing and with traditional music, mainly from the 30s and 40s. Therefore, this music is always the core of my dj-ing, together with carefully selected cortinas”.

Lördag eftermiddag: Ingrid
Ingrid vill spela musik som lockar till dans och har en lustfylld energi. Hon vill bygga upp musiken för milongan med en blandning av rytmisk och kraftfull musik som blandas med mjukare och mer romantiska tongångar. Hon spelar främst klassisk tango från guldåldern med de stora orkestrarna från Buenos Aires. Hon började som dj 2010 och spelar huvudsakligen på milongorna för föreningen Tango Buenos Aros Västerås, där hon är en av föreningens hus-djs. Hon har även spelat några år på Lunnevads Midsommartango och på Tango Retiro i Rättvik samt på Midnight Light tango i Umeå.

Jaana also has great curiosity, knowledge and passion about tango music. She describes “the milonga as an event where people come together to dance, but also to socialize.
