Thank you Igor for unravelling the subject of sound engineering for the milonga. Please don’t wait until you have new things to say – I’m sure there will huge interest in a re-run reminder. David Thomas

Just had a great webinar about sound engineering for tango DJs by Igor El Espejero. After years of work and hundreds of played milongas I finally started to understand something in the whole sound engineering side of our profession.
Thank you, Igor! Xenia Mikhailov
