Dancing from 8pm to midnight
David has DJed at Carablanca many times. He DJs at his own milonga
and at other milongas, encuentros and festivals in the UK and abroad. His music is traditional,
in tandas with cortinas. He studied DJing under Damian Boggio and was influenced by his ideas on
structuring the evening and achieving variety in all aspects of the music.

Tango and cocktails both originally became fashionable in Europe in the early twentieth century
and they are particularly suited to each other. The subtlety and intensity of a well-prepared cocktail
makes it the ideal accompaniment to the mood of tango. Our 1920s period venue, Conway Hall,
provides exactly the right setting for recreating some of the elegance of an earlier cocktail age.
