This week's traditional tanda is a beautiful vals set by Miguel Calo with Alberto Podesta singing.
This week's traditional tanda is a fun set of vals by Enrique Rodríguez and Angel Condercuri. This set is always a crowd pleaser. It is just incredibly happy and fun. I usually play 3 vals, so I play the first two and then pick between the last two depending on my mood.
This weeks tanda is a spirited vals (waltz) set by Juan D'Arienzo. These are great examples of vals criollo (creole waltz). Vals criollo is an evolution of the European vals as influenced by the culture of the working class Argentinean and Uruguayan citizens, primarily a mixture of Spanish and African. Later this would evolve into what we now refer to simply as Tango Vals.
This weeks tanda is a romantic collection of vals by Ricardo Tanturi with Alberto Castillo singing.
This is a very popular vals tanda by Edgardo Donato. This tanda always gets people onto the dance floor and leaves them very happy.
This weeks alternative tanda focuses on pop waltzes (vals). "Hijo de la Luna" is a classic alternative tango song and has a great waltz rhythm for dancing. Sting's "Until" is one of my favorite waltzes to dance to. It is such a beautiful song and has a classic waltz rhythm. "Will you remember" is a sweet and pretty waltz.
