DJ: Theresa Faus (Munich/Germany)
When Theresa plays music, she draws on the richness of the traditional tango music: on the richness in styles, with rhythmic, romantic, complex, dramatic tangos; and on the richness of rhythms, melodic lines, phrasing, timbres, and colors within each tango. She plays for the dancers from a broad spectrum of music, with contrasts from tanda to tanda, in order to keep their inspiration alive during long hours, always observing the mood and the energy on the floor. Her stylistic focus is on subtle, sophisticated, sometimes cheeky music as opposed to bombastic, big drama stuff; mainly from 1930 to 1945, and also from the 20ies, and in smaller doses dramatic and super sweet music from later years. Of the big orchestras Theresa loves especially Aníbal Troilo, there will be no milonga without his music.
Theresa DJs in milongas and special events in many parts of Germany, in the Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Spain, and Buenos Aires. She started to DJ in 2004, and founded her own milonga in 2005; it was the first milonga in Munich with 100% traditional music and is still ongoing.
Theresa’s motto: Music that is upbeat but not hectic, calm but not monotonous, romantic but not overblown – music that gets directly into the feet!
