unknowkn or varying length (review at another time)

  • Stephen Brown : DJing at local milongas, I always play cortinas and mostly adhere to the cycle T4-T4-V3-4-T4-T4-M3. The length of the vals tanda depends on how many good valses fit with the sound of the tanda. For festivals, I always play cortinas and use tandas of 4 for valses and milongas; T4, T4, V4, T4, T4, M4. For a tanda of tango fusion or electro tango, I usually play T3 because the individual pieces of music are longer.
  • Dubravko Kakarigi : I also use the T-T-V-T-T-M format with varied number of songs per tanda. I mostly aim at tango tandas of around 10-11 min and M&V tandas with at most three songs/tanda.

T4-V3-T4-M3

  • Tine Herreman - I use T4-V3-T4-M3 the first hour to prime the party, then I add an additional 4T in there for the bulk of the evening (doing either T4-T4-V3-T4-M3 or T4-V3-T4-T4-M3 ), and I end up the last hour doing T4-T4-V3-T4-T4-M3.
