Ricardo Peixoto (P/UK), friday afternoon
Ricardo has been DJing since 2005. Since then, Ricardo has been DJing regularly in milongas, festivals, encuentros and tango weekends, mainly in England but also in other countries. He is resident DJ in La Milonga Ideal in Warwick, England, where he is also the curator for the DJs of the annual local festival – Tango Spa. Ricardo’s DJ is intuitive, dynamic and centered on the main orchestras of the golden age. He seeks to understand the ronda and is in a constant quest for the ronda to understand him. One eye on the dancefloor, the other on the next tango, his playlists are like a story made of chapters, the tandas. Each milonga is a different narrative, waiting to be written with the dancers.
