DJ La Rubia
A very welcome Argentine visitor at Carablanca a few Fridays ago. Maybe it was knowing where she was from that made the sound quality seem unusually good, and it's hard to say exactly why it was such a great evening. The sound quality: it reminded me of how strong the music can sound without being actually deafening in volume. The choice of music was endlessly excellent: not always familiar, but always great for dancing. Without doubt a DJ with an vast knowledge of the music, who pays constant attention to the mood of the milonga and knows how to keep people moving. It was appreciated by everyone I spoke to. Generally, I think, London tangueros don't know their tango that well in the sense of being able to distinguish between orquestas, but they are well aware when good music for dance is being played, and I think that's what really matters. I hope she'll be back, and I'm sure her name will be a future draw.
