Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker at OsterTango Festival Basel

Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker

Since 2008 I have enjoyed working as Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker for tango dancers providing them with the best dance-able tangos, valses & milongas. Over the years I have been in charge of the music more than 600 times at Tango marathons, Tango festivals, Encuentros and Milongas in twenty three (23) countries and over 110 cities. It might be time to update the numbers again.

Follow me on Facebook as Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker and of course I appreciate a LIKE too.


Dance to my music

In all these years I have DJ’ed in so many different places. Each of them had their special atmosphere and mixture of dancers. Since lockdown in March 2020 I have now started to DJ online at our own Magic Roundabout Sunday Social. Twice a months you can listen and dance to our traditional tango music where ever you are! This is my DJ Agenda with all my upcoming DJ sets as well as my past ones.

Invite me to your tango event

At the moment I am based near Coleford, Gloucestershire, in the UK. But this does not stop me from travelling. I love to come and play (& teach) for you in the UK and abroad.

I am open for bookings in 2020/21.

My online classes are growing and this is beginning to limit my time available for travels. Please let me know if you want me to DJ and teach at your event. Best to contact me now


Tango DJ Coaching with Bärbel

Over the last years I have held several Tango DJ workshops & seminars. Since 2014 I teamed up with my partner Paul Strudwick (former BBC sound engineer) and offer the special Tango DJ seminar: Tango, Tandas & Technology.

These are the latest DJ Seminars:

Get in contact if you are interested in joining our next Tango DJ seminar ‘Tango, Tandas & Technology’.

Tango DJ Bärbel on YouTube

Very early on in my Tango DJ career I started filming short video clips from the DJ desk during my sets. Since 2018 I have a YouTube Channel Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker where you can find those videos from my sets around Europe (Milongas, Marathons, Festivals & Encuentros).

But that’s not everything you’ll find on this channel. I have created some playlists of my ‘cortinas’ and Tango orchestras. Take a look for yourself!
