what a year!
Long time no read. Since tango dancing and event organization was massively effected there was no reason for a newsletter. However there was more time to work on tango music and our TANGO-DJ.AT DATABASE. In regards to that, there is big news.
At this moment we still don't see a possibility to make definitive decisions regarding new event dates for Vienna Calling Tango Marathon and International Milongas in 2021. We hope to be able to get in touch with you with new tango event dates during the first quarter of 2021.
In December 2020 Christian Xell, Jens-Ingo Brodesser, Béné Beauloye and Bernhard Gehberger agreed on cooperation of TangoTunes, myTango.online, Tango Time Travel and TANGO-DJ.AT. All TangoTunes recordings are going to be added to the TANGO-DJ.AT DATABASE. By then the database will feature ~80.000 tango recordings and expand its position as the largest digital accessible tango archive providing sound samples, full cover art, extensive meta data and covering all kind of tango music sources - from 78-RPM shellacs, over LPs, CDs up to digital releases.
Basic meta data information is accessible for free. Unlimited features and full meta data is available via two supporting membership options - DB Membership and Full Membership. If you want to support maintenance and development of this database project financially or by contributing in other ways please let me know, there is a long to-do-list of things to add, correct, research, improve and develop.
myTango.online is a new project by Chrisitan Xell offering tango music compilations dedicated to tango teachers and dancers. Using the promo code 6035 will give you a 20% discount on your purchase.
If you want to know details about those successful projects TangoTunes, Tango Time Travel, Tango Records, TANGO-DJ.AT Database providing information and new digital tango releases, and why I consider this important for the tango community, please feel free to read on.
Otherwise Happy New Year!
