Respecting these codes and you will be able to enjoy truthfully and deeply the milongas.
(it will be available on September 29th at 21h(Portugal time)/ 22h (rest of the Europe)
Please read it carefully:
We have thought about the most fair and transparent way to accept the inscriptions and we want to share it with all the participants. Here are the principles that will guide us in dealing with the inscriptions:
1) The first aspect is related to the main point of an encuentro milongueiro: It is important that all the participants really feel comfortable and enjoy dancing in close embrace and respect the milonguero codes, both in the way of inviting and also in the way of entering and moving in the dance floor, with all the care and respect by all.
2) Considering it is an encuentro, where intensity grows as we live it and share it, our presence is also very important to maximize the possibility of the experience to be even deeper. Due to that, we give attention to the participants registering to the full event of milongas.
3) Due to the gender balance importance and the concern of having the same number of leaders and followers so that we can all enjoy the encuentro experience at its best, we recommend (although it is not mandatory) the inscription in couple. That would improve the possibility of participation.
4) Finally, the order of inscriptions is a factor that we respect and consider as a form of sequencing the participants after considering the previous principles.
Therefore, in order to have the maximum transparency in this process and to prevent all the participants from feeling hurt or disrespected we will follow this principles as we believe this is the best way we found to give everyone the same care, respect and consideration.

Deborah Segantini (Almabruja) (IT)
Deborah Segantini, Almabruja for tango friends, plays a selection of traditional music that ranges from 30s to 50s, organized into tandas and cortinas. All the major Orquestras are always present. In this moment she has a real soft spot for De Caro, Laurenz and Tipica Victor. She adores
Pugliese. On certain evenings a modern tanda can slip, a mixed tanda usually containing some older music too, or a Chacarera or Swing cortina.
She tells about herself: "I construct tandas as a dancer and I select them according to the interpretation of the messages coming from the dance floor, in the belief that the DJ should provide service to the dancers. I play music with a dual purpose: to free the largest number of chairs in the room and... satisfy the ear of those who, by will, fatigue or a bit of bad luck, remain seated.
The rarest piece of the evening is never just for ears and I try to propose it with respect to the balance created during the evening. Deep respect and sincere admiration for Piazzolla's tango, but I reserve the right to hear it at home with a good red wine glass :)"

Céline runs the Pasionaria Milonguera Festival (in the south of France). She teaches tango, organizes events, and is very busy travelling as a highly sought-
Her motivation: to keep intact the energy of the ball room in privileging the emotion of the group, and intimity of each dance.
André Pires (PT)
I see the DJ as a dancer that is present in the milonga as I believe that it is a good way for having a musical selection based on the empathy with the milongueros and adjusted to the energy of the milonga.
I give special attention to the "cortinas" as a creative possibility, which, without overlaying Tango, can help to maintain the energy, calm down, serve as a transition, suggest the next "tanda"...
I regard has main principle the danceability of the themes because I believe that it is in the tune with the music that we all can live a richer Tango experience.
Dj Gato Milongueiro (Pt)
It's a huge privilege for me to prepare and care for the milonga DJing – after all, it's all about the hard and demanding care needed for all the "milongueros" of the ball room...
...y siga el Tango!
Dj Silêncio (Pt)
I believe that each Milonga has its own identity and that the Dj has a crucial role in the course of the dance floor and, as a consequence, in the happiness of all its participants. I seek to feel throughout the milonga its energy and mood and choose the music that better fits each situation without compromising the rioplatense tradition. The challenge is to take the most accurate emotion out of each traditional orchestra.
I am one of the organizers of the Milonga A Promotora where I am one of its residents DJs.
As a tango teacher both of children and adults, I believe that the music has a crucial role in our evolution
Dj Fred Romero
Fred is a frequent presence in milongas that are of tango milonguero type -
The excellence of its musical selection takes more and more organizers of encuentro milongueros to request his abilities.
