Milongas and DJs of La Boda

Dear Tangueras and Tangueros,


time to get ready! Tomorrow we start the festival accompanying our wedding festivity and we would like to introduce our DJs and the milongas to you:


Thu 3.5. – 20:00 – 23:59 – Festivalito La Boda – opening milonga

The opening milonga will start on 3rd May at 20:00 at Tango Chocolate. DJ Veronica Villaroel and DJ Marcelo Soria welcome you heartily. You may expect tasty Empanadas, freshly important from Argentina and a Strawberry-Kiwi Punch made by Maestro Marcelo.


Fri 4.5. – 21:00 – …. – Festivalito La Boda – visiting La Yumba

While the non-dancers among the guests will have a wedding dinner, DJ Bärbel Rücker will play for the dancers at La Yumba her fantastic tandas – full of her energy and her great feeling for the right music at the right moment. Bride and groom will come over for a midnight Vals to La Yumba and we expect many dancers from abroad.


Sat 5.5. – 15:00 – 19:00 – Festivalito La Boda –  day milonga at Chocolate

After the workshops you can experience your newly achieved skills at the day milonga and prepare yourself for the evening: DJ Paul Strudwick from UK will be for the first time in Hamburg – “The magic roundabout milonga” and play for you. Lets greet him here and dance to his music!


Sat 5.5. – 20:00 – 03:00 – Festivalito La Boda – Milonga Grande at theatre DIE BURG

For the Milonga Grande we have found a spectacular location: Die Burg („the castle“) – a theatre hall in a former church. We find it suits very well to a wedding.  Starting from 21:00 DJ Don Carlos will heat the dancing floor in his typical glorious way, the energy will float to a peak. Orchestra Silencio will play two magic sets for you, at about 22:30 and at midnight. Diana del Valle & Juan Camerlingo as well as Veronica Villaroel & Marcelo Soria will dance with the life music their shows – for us, for you! Be sure: it will be remarkable! Before the Milonga starts you can get dressed right at the spot: we open the foyer from 20:00 to present to you tango fashion by Gabriele Stankozi (gs-move) and shoes by Rosanna Sabaini.


Sun 6.5. – 16:30 – 23:00 – Festivalito La Boda – Farewell milonga

Also a wedding weekend must end. Our long-years friend Evaldas Drasutis from Lithuania will be the DJ of the farewell milonga at the Chocolate. Evaldas started DJing in the Baltics more than 12 years – he trained many local DJs there.  For our wedding he will for the first time play in Hamburg – very traditional, very well structured and in high quality sound. We guarantee full joy for your dancing. And we offer delicious cakes (included in the entry fee) from a local bakery.


We can´t wait to dance on these great sounds. Please, come along and share the joy with us.
