The classical composers of the more melodic orchestras of the golden age of tango music stand out in their TDJ style. Her inspiration lies in the traditional beginnings of tango music. She predominantly combines more melodic authors such as Di Sarli, Calo and D’Agostino and constantly discovers new layers of classic tango authors D’Arienza and Troil, thus bringing a new experience to the audience and dancers on the podium.
