For those of you who are new to Tango and wondering what a 'Milonga' means, in this context it is describing an evening of dancing.

 

At our Milongas we play mainly traditional Music. Music is organised in 'tandas' (groups) of 3 or 4 songs that are sympathetic to each other in style and era separated by a 'cortina'. Our cortinas are generally a short marked silence as we want tandas to flow and work with each other.

 

Though the evening we organise our tandas following the common pattern of 2 tandas of tango, then one tanda of Vals, followed by 2 more of tango, then one tanda of milonga (in this contex it means rhythmical music). The pattern then repeats (T,T,V,T,T,M,T.T,V,T,T,M, etc.)
