I think those who say that you can’t tango if you are not Argentine are mistaken.
Tango was an immigrant music... so it does not have a nationality. Its only passport is feeling.

    He is known for his carefully selected tandas, and a fine balance between the lyrical and energetic in tango.

  • DJ Jory

    Resident Dj at Tango Si and Hotel New York. He likes to bring the famous tangos to the dancers, with a slight touch of the more unknown tangos from the golden age.

    Together with DJ Carlos, they make a perfect combination of the most rhythmic milongas to the most lyrical tangos.

  • DJ Carlos

    Resident DJ at ’t Klooster. Carlos has been to Buenos Aires to study many aspects of the argentine tango music. He developed his Dj style by mixing the golden age with the best from the new orchestras nowadays.

    Together with Dj Jory, they make a perfect combination of the most rhythmic milongas to the most lyrical tangos.

  • Tangata

    Tangata is a Tango ensemble, composed of four fine musicians, who have been honing their skills in the Argentine tango for many years. With their innovative and unique style, they compose and bring back to life arrangements of the tango music by Troilo, Pugliese, De Caro, Di Sarli, Piazzolla, Salgan, Mores and many more.
    They also perform their own special compositions written by their pianist Margreet Markerink. Her music shows us the Argentine tango is still in full development.
    Melancholy, but also exuberant and driving rhythms make the performances of Tangata a feast for the ears, feet and heart.
