DJ Peña (Argentine Folklore Party)

1. Viktoria Lizunova (Moscow)
2. Anastasia Staroselzeva (Moscow)

1. What orchestra do you associate the Urals with and why?

I can even name a song: Amurado, Laurenz Casas version. A lot of irrepressible energy, ancient and complex: seemingly complex at first, but in fact very warm. And after you’ve been impressed enough, here’s another repeat of the variation.

If we talk about folk, then with El Chango Nieto-the depth of sound, the joy of performance, innovative revision of familiar things, very traditional. Here you can find Roizman, and Curentzis, and many other wonderful creators of our time in the Urals.

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

Joy, of course. A joy to look each other in the eyes, a joy to embrace, a joy to live out what you hear inside of the music. Folk itself is a very joyful thing

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in the cold Ural winter?!

In winter we also make Peña Del Mar. We take shovels, scrub and scour favorite “dance floor” under the surprised looks of the Park staff and dance. The Ural winter conditions of are perfect for such madness! Do not forget to bring speakers and a thermos of mulled wine, and adentro!

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

Basically, there are no orchestras in folklore but solo performers. And if we compare the Urals with the performers, I would say that it is like Atahualpa Yupanqui: rooted, wise, about the mountains and about strong people. The same one who knows how to dream!

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

Folklore – it’s about joy. So through music I would like to convey joy: from life, from people, from communication, from beauty, from the moment.

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in cold Ural winter?!

🔥CARNAVALITO!

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

Di Sarli – severe, but diverse.

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

What I want to give? An altered state of consciousness in what you can be anyone, play and live as you like; and dance to any music with anyone.

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in cold Ural winter?!

Excursions through the streets of Yekaterinburg with hot mulled wine… with dances. And then the joint Russian sauna… with dances.

Mikhail Naumov (Yekaterinburg)

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

The Orchestra Of Juan D’Arienzo. Because we are just the same, “bold and hot red”

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

Chance to dance

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in cold Ural winter?!

A joint viewing of the film “Baywatch»

Alexey Doro (Minsk)

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

– Pugliese
– Why?
– I’ve never been to Ural, so I just pictured a view from my plane window: the beauty of the mountains… and Pugliese is best suited to this picture.

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?What I want to give depends very much on milonga’s circumstances.

Friday night is just the beginning, and music should help people to relax and find comfort in a new place.

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in the cold Ural winter?!

Small saunas for two throughout the city and in the venue of the marathon.

Andrew Skiba (Tel Aviv)

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

Definitely Aníbal Troilo. Big, very diverse, but always beautiful. Even individual compositions evoke associations with the Urals: “Tinta roja” reminds mischievous lizard from “Mistress of the Copper Mountain”, and “Uno” – mountain Telposiz, stately and serious.

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

I want to share with the participants our Mediterranean cheerfulness, ease and enthusiasm. We are able, of course, to be sad and serious, but not for long.

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in the cold Ural winter?!

With a little luck, I’ll bring the weather of sunny Tel Aviv.

Arseny Olear (Tomsk)

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

I associate the Urals with D’Arienzo, because in many ways the Uralians and Siberians are similar: Hot blood and cold weather are perfectly combined with cheerful rhythms))).

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

I just want to delight people with my music, so leaving they savored very pleasant tandas danced with someone, and among these tandas would be mine).

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in the cold Ural winter?!

My option: a veeeery close embrace and some mulled wine)

Ekaterina Vinogradova (Moscow)

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

Orchestra Tipica Alfredo Gobbi. In the early his path Gobbi played in sextet Vardaro-Pugliese together with Troilo. Then for some time he headed a sextet, in which played Pugliese, Troilo and almost all musicians, later included in the first composition of Orchestra Tipica Alfredo Gobbi. Such close cooperation and communication with innovative musicians and composers of that time could not but affect the style of Gobby: sometimes his hearing is mistaken for a Pugliese because of the powerful connection of the double bass, bandoneon and piano, strong grounding. Nevertheless, with such passion and power, the music of Gobbi sounds softer and gentler for me, it is no wonder that Gobbi is called “romantic tango violin”.
All I know about the nature of the Urals is the mountains between two flat plates. In addition, another fact that the climate throughout the Urals varies from harsh to soft. This is a combination of power and romance within the music of Gobby I already know, and I’m only going to get acquainted with the Urals.

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

I want to let the participants go through as full range of emotions as possible. Tango music is as emotionally multifaceted as life itself. My aim is to listen to everything that happens at the milonga and make the emotions flow smoothly into each other, allowing the dancers to open up and feel comfortable.

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in the cold Ural winter?!

To make it warm when it’s cold… waltzes, milongas and tangos with variations have already been created

Nikita Vasiliev (St. Petersburg)

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

I associate Urals with D’Arienzo orchestra. Why? The simplest thing is because it warms, always and everywhere. And in winter there is nothing more desirable than warmth. The warmth of music, movement and a person with whom we dance.
For me it will be the first time so far from St. Petersburg in Russia (before I always traveled to the other direction). Although our winter is not much warmer, I am sure that the orchestra
will help everyone to stay on the wave of drive and positive.

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

With my music I would like to invite all the participants and guests of the marathon to an exciting journey, a journey of a milonga length. Give the whole palette of emotions and colors — from the brightest to the darkest. So we can create the perfect canvas, collectible wine or anything (everyone can choose). The DJ gives energy to the dancers and the dancers help to the DJ.

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in the cold Ural winter?!

The question is unexpected, but nevertheless, dancing tango is the key to warmth in any weather. The variant is to dance tango with friends and strangers, give each other the warmth of hugs, smiles and passion.
PS: if this is not enough, then you can go dancing in a hot outdoor pool ☺

Evgeny Morozov (Moscow)

1. What orchestra do you associate Ural with and why?

Oddly enough with the orchestra of Osvaldo Fresedo. For someone Ural this something brutal, cold )) And for me this is place, where I was born and I have a lot of warm and cozy memories with these places. The same feeling I get from this orchestra: warmth, comfort and sincerity. And of course I remember the first Ural tango Marathon with great warmth. The cordiality, care and breadth of soul with which the organizers have created and conducted all this is impressive! And I highly recommend you to be here in February and feel it!

2. What would you like to give through your music to the participants of 2UTM?

On the classic milonga first of all I would like to give a sense of celebration, comfort and coziness. And using music I want to make people a little happier )) I would like to create such emotions that will inspire people, fill in their senses and motivate them to dance.
In addition, I was privileged to play music for alternative milonga. And I want to dispel some “scary myths” about alternative tango and tango-nuevo ))
As one of the leading DJs in the direction of NeoTango, I will play a part of my musical set in the format of NeoTango. I want the dancers to see that if you do it right, balanced and tasteful, it creates a completely amazing and inspiring reality! I think it’s worth trying))

3. Your version of the creative pastime for the marathon participants to keep warm in the cold Ural winter?!

To warm up in the harsh Ural frost we will use the hot embrace of each other inspired by the best music!)
