Alessandro Francini

He is the resident tdj of the Milonga Blu (Florence, Italy). He usually defines himself as a "Di Sarli and D'Arienzo lover"; he appreciates every kind of music. For this reason, he prefers playing his music through CDs, since they allow him reproducing an embracing sounds, able to perfectly fit the original recordings. His selections are classics (without imposing "novelty" pieces), and his set list is perfect for a dancing tango night. The dancefloor plays a fundamental role for him, and, like a good tailor does, he tries to adapt his selection to different events.
His cortinas, which he proposes at the end of each tanda, are made to accompany dancers at their place with glee and happiness, but always respecting the taste of everyone. He works mainly in Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna and Valle d'Aosta. 

"Tango just blew my mind. I began my path with Carina Calderon and Marco del Forno, and I immediately had a spark for this kind of dance. During the course of time I became aware that the interpretation of Tango could not be separated from a deep study of its music. The satisfaction of people and the big attendance of my events, apart from paying back my work, make me understand of the right direction of my path. I like setting the milonga night in a very classic, yet fun tango style. I want to leave space to the major bands, arranging and mixing pieces in order to preserve the uniqueness of each author, date and rhythm."
