Welcome to my blog
– Tango DJ Jessica Carleson

I have been a tango-dj since 2015. I dj regularly at milongas and practicas in Stockholm and have also done gigs from Umeå up north to Malmö down south. In August 2017 I did my first international gig at Summerdaze in Nijmegen, Holland. Since then I’ve been back to Nijmegen, Barcelona, to Bonn, Bad Schwalbach, Randers, and Reykjavik.

My last big gig in 2019 was Totally in Tango in Hamburg, 29 November-1 December.

Then came corona… and the world changed.

In October 2021 I did my first gig abroad since the pandemic began, at milonga Desbande in Barcelona. In January 2022 I returned for my third gig at that lovely milonga. ❤️

Barcelona has become like a home away from home for me and Monday 28 March I will dj at La Sagrada milonga for the first time. I’m always nervous before a gig, and extra nervous when playing at a new venue and meeting new dancers. But the fun prevails, almost every time ❤️

As the world now returns to normal it feels pretty certain that I will dj at Totally in tango Copenhagen in May and organize international double role and queer marathon Alma de Bohemia in Stockholm with six friends. During summer I will organize an outdoor milonga for the ninth year with my good friend Kim.

I always strive to play music that has energy and warmth, that makes you want to dance! My favourite orchestras are Troilo, d’Arienzo and Biagi.
I can never resist Tanturi, Laurenz or Canaro.
