Theresa Faus has been a tango DJ for 14 years.  Based in Munich, she has DJed at milongas and special events throughout Europe and in Buenos Aires.  We are delighted to welcome her to DJ for the first time at Carablanca.

I recommend you read Theresa's DJ statement which I include in full.

"When I play music I draw on the richness of the traditional tango music: on the richness in styles, with rhythmic, romantic, complex, dramatic tangos; and on the richness of rhythms, melodic lines, phrasing, timbres, and colours within each tango.  I play for the dancers from a broad spectrum of music, with contrasts from tanda to tanda, in order to keep their inspiration alive during hours, always observing the mood and the energy on the floor.  My stylistic focus is on subtle, sophisticated, sometimes cheeky music as opposed to bombastic, big drama stuff; mainly from 1930 to 1945, and also from the 20s, and in smaller doses dramatic and super sweet music from later years.  Of the big orchestras I love especially Aníbal Troilo, there will be no milonga without his music.

This is my motto: Music that is upbeat but not hectic, calm but not monotonous, romantic but not overblown - music that gets directly into the feet!"

Theresa's visit to Carablanca was arranged in collaboration with Magic Roundabout Milongas.
