by DJ El Gato Suave (yours truly)
The stream is organized into a three hour virtual milonga, with a heavy
emphasis on Nuevo and Alternative Tango music. I will try to post a new
milonga every few weeks or so. Or sometimes I will play all the previous Bailonga Streams.
Please share this link with your tango friends and family, and post it
in your local tango forums/lists. I'd like to build the station and
make it a real resource for people seeking alternatives/supplements to
the wonderful traditional tango music of our ancestors. I believe that
for tango to survive and flourish, it must live in the present day,
connected to our own histories and cultures, while building on the roots of tradition.
I'm very much interested in feedback on the music played, the
format, or just on alternative tango music in general. I'm especially
interested in your suggestions for good, danceable alternative/nuevo
If you would like to be on to my email list to receive updates
and new stream notifications, just send me an email an I will add you.
I promise not to send out more then one email a month!
** Please do not record these streams, as I am operating with
very limited bandwith, and taking it up for recording isn't fair to
other listeners. (And the quality level is not that great anyway, I have it set at 56Kbps/22Khz.

If you have trouble, you can go here to check that this stream is running, and see how many listeners are currently connected, which can affect performance. (Note that the list of "Recent Tracks" is not always accurate).
When you click on
the above link your audio player should open automatically and start
playing, or you might get a window asking you what to do. Hopefully
iTunes is there as an option. If so click "OK". If not click "Choose"
and find itunes, then click OK. OR, you might get a download window,
with an ITunes "play" icon, which you should double click.
If that doesn't work open iTunes, go to "Advanced" in the
window menu at top, choose "Open Stream..." and copy and paste the
stream address ( http://188.8.131.52:8000/listen.m3u ) into the window
and hit "OK". That should do it...
