DJ SARA D'AJELLO CARACCIOLO - 3 FEBRUARY
"Selecting music in a milonga is like writing a story. There is always a thread, sometimes rather abstract, other times more concrete, that connects the various pieces, letting emerge step by step an emotion, or an image, or a memory or that indefinable shift of the heart worth dancing for".
Dancer, teacher and dj, Sara dances tango since 1995 and teaches it since 2002. In 2003 she started with other friends the musical project 'Sulle rive del Tango' - a selection of non traditional tango - which is currently at its fifth compilation, published and distributed across Europe and the world. The project consists of three weekly milongas, in Naples, Milan and Barcelona, many deejays and people working together on the musical research, creating the 'poetry' of the project, and she is often invited as dj in many events and international festivals.
As dj she loves to travel sweetly between different musical styles, her selection is rich in variation and goes from the traditional tangos to the alternative music, which proportion varies according to the context. Above all she loves looking for tango that 'is hidden' in different music genres.

Taboe is the first and longest running alternative tango salon in the Netherlands since 2003. Taboe has offered a warm meeting place for thousands of dancers ever since, where newcomers feel just as much at home as the very experienced. Taboe wants to promote diversity and tolerance of different music and tango styles in an open & welcoming atmosphere, because we think these are important for an inviting, evolving and innovative tango community.
