Alla Drugova is a co-founder and teacher of Argentine tango and folklore at Taras & Alla's Tango School in Kyiv. Passionate fan of Osvaldo Pugliese and tireless researcher of various styles of tango dancing. «I dived deep into tango over twelve years ago, and this music continues to fascinate me during lessons, milongas or in the process of creating the next tanda. I prefer to play exactly what catches and touches me as a social dancer because at the milonga we just want to dance. When choosing a tanda, I usually think which orchestra has that magic that lifts even very tired milongueros from comfy chairs now and makes them run to the dance floor. Often I find these features in Golden Age orchestras and in some later compositions. I believe that the musical mood should change throughout the milonga and I strive to ensure that tandas are never boring or too similar. My ideal milonga is the one after which you may not remember exactly what kind of music was played, but you feel that you had a great time and maybe fell in love a little.»
