Bärbel’s Tango DJ’ing approach includes songs mostly from the late 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s. In addition, her distinctive use of Cortinas provides a structure which further enhances the dancing experience (especially at bigger events so that dancers have the opportunity to change partners). Finally, her ability to adapt her selection of music to the multiple elements that make up a particular milonga is an aspect of Bärbel’s individual style which has become her unique signature. For example:

  • The specific time of day or night the milonga is taking place
  • The milonga venue and its environment
  • The number of people present
  • The skills of the dancers as observed on the floor

  • “I like to describe DJ’ing as a way of story telling. One song is already a little story. Combining 4 songs gives a little chapter. The combination of the tandas during the night creates the whole story.”

  • “(..) 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. (…)” DJ Bärbel Rücker | Tanzbar, Oktober 2014 – tangoinfo.ch – Interview mit Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker | Tanzbar
