This year, he will be adding Cheltenham International Tango Festival to his list of UK festivals!
His DJing is mainly based around Golden era Orchestras although he also DJs regularly at Negracha tango on their contemporaneo dance floor, where he plays orchestras from the 60s onwards with touches of electro and other non-tango tunes.
Ewa is originally from Poland, but is now based in London. She is a regular DJ at several of the London venues, including Corrientes, Pavadita, The Crypt, The Dome, Negracha and The Light.
She has been invited to DJ at European events including in Paris, Oslo, Warsaw, Łódź, Angoulême, Palermo, Geneva, Moscow, Yalta, Amersfoot, Barcelona and Sitges. In the UK, she has played at Edinburgh, Rivertango and Spitalfields and we are now delighted to say that she will be sharing her music on Friday evening at Cheltenham International Tango Festival.
Ewa plays traditional tango, with an emphasis on creating different moods and musical textures to bring a range of emotions to the dancers.
Leroy Tango Cat
Anyone who has regularly attended our Cabaret Parisien Ball (or even goes back to when it was called something we are no longer allowed to call it) will be aware that Leroy Tango Cat was there from the very first one. We couldn't picture a major event like the Cheltenham International Tango Festival without some of Leroy's music, so he will be there to provide some of his usual flair!
Leroy is a teacher, performer and DJ who is much loved across the south of England and beyond. He is based in London, but has taught regularly in Oxford and is always a welcome visitor in the west of England, most notably in Cheltenham and Hereford. As a teacher, he brings a unique smoothness to tango and as a DJ, he brings an eclectic mix of music into the tango world and has always made our Summer Ball an event to be remembered!
He is back by popular demand to the Cheltenham International Tango Festival!!
DJ Osvaldo transmits energy and tradition in every tanda. He chooses each theme with passion and creates the desire to dance.
In this manner, milongas where DJ Osvaldo provides the music come alive with magic, tradition and charm ... not forgetting La Tandita Rosa, a selection made especially by his partner, Graciela to encourage the girls to invite the boys to dance!
This, and many other suprises make milongas with DJ Osvaldo unforgettable.
Paul has been dancing tango around the world with his wife Maureen for 13 years. They are based in Bristol and were hosts at Halo Tango for 8 years where Paul was resident DJ.
Paul is a regular guest DJ at the Tango Feast in Devon and will be returning for a third year to the Cheltenham International Tango Festival.
Rob Jessop is one of our homegrown tango talents and often DJs at our events. He started his DJ career in the salsa world where he still regularly DJs and dances, but has expanded into the world of tango.
Rob has been a DJ at the festival for two years now and has agreed to bring his lovely music to you once again this year.
