T, T & T – 2 seminars for tango music lovers & DJs | London

Oct 27th, 2014 by Bärbel | Comments Off

Tango, Tandas & Technology [part1] | WS in LondonTango, Tandas & Technology [part2] | WS in London

The Magic Roundabout Milongas TANZBAR.dk present:

Tango, Tandas & Technology -
2 Workshops for Tango Music Lovers & DJs
.

Bärbel Rücker and Paul Strudwick draw on their combined experience of tango dj’ing and sound engineering to present this essential guide for anyone wanting an appreciation of the skills involved in organising a tango music library and dj’ing.
Part 1 will be about where to find tango music and helps to understand the often mentioned and discussed file formats (FLAC, mp3, wav etc.), which orchestras shouldn’t be missed out and which ones could be interesting to explore more.
Part 2  will be about how to approach the milonga, construction of tandas, choice of cortinas, quality of sound equipment and tips on how to control the sound, and how to dj a good night.
This we hope will also give people who are not dj-ing the tools to appreciate and appraise other djs and events, and of course is relevant to anyone running events.

What students say about a private class with Bärbel Rücker | Tanzbar:

“Thanks for the inspiring ws and for all the lovely ’songs’!!!!! Hopefully you’ll be back soon! Saskia”
Saskia H. – email –  Tango WS & Sunday Milonga SCALA | Eindhoven (13th October 2013)

“… thank you very much for the Music – you have created an amaising mood for me (to keep me with energy at the end of the week) and dancing, and an immence pleasure with your passion and sensitivity to the music and people dancing to it))). the workshop was a great lesson in the roles in tango and the power of the music… looking forward to see you soon! …”
Anastasia U. – facebook – SaTho Milonga & Workshop (22nd March 2013)

“For at få en førsteklasses introduktion til det agentinske tangounivers, bookede vi en privat undervisningtime med Bärbel. Det var både sjovt, lærerigt, udfordrende og meget brugbart. Efter kun én time med god instruktion i musikken, rytmerne, de første trin, tangostemningen m.m. kunne vi forsætte dansen alene hjemme i køkkenet. Bärbel er en virkelig dygtig og inspirerende danseinstruktør, det formår at tilpasse undervisningen et hvert niveau. Vi vil helt sikkert igen prøve kræfter med den argentinske tango. Tak for en god aften!”
Rikke og Mikkel – email – Privattimer [private classes], København (14. april 2012)

“Much appreciated your presence. Private lesson was exceptional due to the way you tune with us. We’re already experiencing the change and improvement and most of all more fun. Take care :)”

INTERVIEW Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker | Tanzbar auf tangoinfo.ch

Oct 9th, 2014 by Bärbel | Comments Off

Anfang August 2014 habe ich mich in Bern mit Michael von tangoinfo.ch getroffen. Bei Kaffee und Kuchen haben wir uns über Gott und die Welt unterhalten. Dann zückte er seinen vorbereiteten Fragebogen und los ging es. Seine Kamera hatte er auch mit dabei und schnell entstanden die Photos vor dem Bundeshaus in Bern.

Das Resultat könnt Ihr jetzt online lesen auf
tangoinfo.ch – Interview mit Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker | Tanzbar.

Ein kurze Kostprobe:

  • “(..) DJ’en ist immer ein Wechselspiel mit den Tänzern und es ist schön, wenn man als DJ einen Platz an der Tanzfläche hat und nicht in einer hinteren, dunklen Ecke „versteckt“ wird. Das erleichtert den Kontakt zu den Tänzern. (…)”

Wer gerne noch mehr Lesen möchtet, der findet auch ein Interview mit mir auf Englisch:

  • “And I like to say that my preparation for becoming a tango DJ started with the first tango song I ever listened to at a milonga.”

Barocco Milonga | Cardiff

On Monday 3rd November 2014 I will be DJ’ing for the first time in Cardiff @ Barocco Milonga organized by Tango Edge. This will be the Halloween Special.

BAROCCO MILONGA

Weekly Milonga

  • Every Monday
  • 8.00-11.30 pm
  • Barocco Bar, Wharton Street, Cardiff.
  • www.baroccocardiff.co.uk
  • A relaxed night of tango dancing in Cardiff City centre

The venue

  • Barocco Bar is a fantastic place for tango with it’s rich wooden floor, velvet furnishings and baroque statues.
  • On Mondays we have the whole of the upstairs for ourselves, with comfy seating on one side of the dance floor and the balcony on the other. Looking down from the balcony you can see the bar and sometimes you can see onlookers staring up astounded at this dance we call tango.

Music

  • Mostly the good old favourites from the golden age of tango in Buenos Aires, but occasionally with a sprinkling of nuevo tracks and some which aren’t tango at all but are gorgeous to dance to.
