DDPs Favorite Tandas:
Donato, Milonga

Donato: Classic Milongas with Horacio Lagos

Sacale punta (1938)
La milonga que faltaba
Ella es así (1938)

There have been a dearth of milonga tandas on my blog, so here is one to remedy that. Donato‘s milongas are absolutely wonderful, especially the timeless “Ella es así.” As I’ve already said, I realize that most every good tanda has been played by another DJ before me. This is especially true of my favorite vals and milonga tandas, because there are simply fewer danceable valses and milongas. In this particular case I am absolutely certain I have heard this milonga tanda from many other DJs many times, and you know what? True classics never go out of style.
