Tango in Hell – 22-24 March 2019

Want to be the first to dance tango in Hell?

Registration here.

Tango in Hell is a compact milonga weekend featuring international DJs. Everything is at one place, situated at Scandic Hell Hotel, a 600 meter walking distance from Trondheim airport and Værnes train station. Hell Shopping Center is 100 meters away, so basically you have all you need within eyesight 🙂

At the hotel you will dance and dine in very nice surroundings. The price of NOK 2 490/≈265 euros includes the following:
* Access to 6 milongas (4 traditional and 2 alternative/nuevo milongas)
* 2 nights in double room, check in Friday, check out Sunday (single room NOK 700/≈74 euros extra)
* 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners
* Free 2 hr DJ seminar
* Free parking
* Free transport from/to airport (by request)
* Pool, sauna, fitness room and relaxation area at the top floor of the hotel.

Prices are shown at deltager.no. Dancers with other alternatives can exclude accomodation and food from the price.

We are aiming towards a balance between followers and leaders. When there is overweight of 10 persons of any kind, the registration will temporarily be put on hold. Registration in couples will make it easier for us to manage and for you to enter 🙂

Btw, “Hell” in Norwegian means “luck”, “something about to finish” or “pour”.

* Tomas Kohl (Prague, Czech Republic)
* Eva-Lena (Linköping, Sweden)
* Nisse (Linköping, Sweden)
* DJ AppleJack (Langeland, Denmark)

Album Notes
As a performer of tango music I have always been fascinated by the unique sound of the bandoneón and how the instrument is used in solo arrangements and compositions. Performing together with bandoneón players and writing for the instrument as an arranger/composer has inspired me to adapt some of the techniques and interpretational aspects into my own piano playing.

I wanted to see if I could incorporate the multilayered, flowing and improvisational manner of playing – constantly changing focus between the bass, chords, and melodic structures, rather than trying to do all at once as often as possible, like an orchestral reduction.

This approach can be heard throughout the album and is taken to the extreme in El Marne, which is a bandoneón arrangement adapted for the piano. The melting point is the tribute composition “Tristezas de un doble S” where Piazzolla’s «Alfred Arnold» bandoneón is replaced by «Steinway and Sons».

Los Mareados: A musical poem of the great classic tango
Sentimiento Tanguero: Lucio Demare meets Håkon Skogstad
Tango del Angel: A piano adaptation tribute to Leopoldo Federico and his orchestra’s arrangement
Milonga Impromptu: A retrospective composition where Chopin meets tango
Felicia: In memory of the late Horacio Salgán
Sur: A rhapsodic arrangement flirting with the original
Norte: North contrasting South – A Norwegian “tanguero” composition
El Marne: A piano adaptation of Leopoldo Federico’s bandoneón arrangement
Canaro en Paris: Salgán meets Horowitz in this concert paraphrase arrangement
Tristezas de un doble S: Exploring the bandoneónesque sounds of Piazzolla on the piano

DJ Gabriel Bakke:
My DJing is inpired by the traditional berganian school. I always try to deliver consistant tandad and I prefer the highly loved evergreens. Though, I do not hesitate to include my personal touch. Among other places, I have played at Bergen Marathon, Bergen Embrace Afterparty, Vilnius Marathon, Riga Festivalito og Oslo Easter Tango.

DJ Birger Haugdal:
I`m the veteran amongst Norwegian dj’s, with ten years of international experience. I describe my DJ style as harmonic, but I then also plays with more contrast when that feels right. For me it`s a important thing is to play inspiring and varied music for dancers who prefer traditional tango. Like many other dancers and DJs, golden age music is closest to me.

DJ Lilian Strömberg:
I started to dance tango in 1997 and my experience as a tango DJ is more than 15 years. I have been DJing in most milongas in Stockholm and several festivals all over Sweden. I have also been playing on festivals in Norway, Finland, Latvia and Italy. l am playing Argentine tango music from the Golden Age. Simply music for dancing.

DJ Folke Rubin:
My career as a tango DJ is far much shorter than my experience as a tango dancer. In addition to a DJ-gig, Bomboncito in Bologna, I am a local rookie from Umeå. I will try to induce some more emotional “ahas” and “wows” among the many wonderful and melodic evergreens of tango. If the final choice of music will reflect both the needs, curiosity and floor craft, then my mission will be completed.
