Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker at OsterTango Festival Basel

Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker

Since 2008 I am enjoying 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 550 times at Tango marathons, Tango festivals, Encuentros and Milongas in twenty three (23) countries and  over 108 cities. It might be on 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

This is my DJ Agenda with all my upcoming DJ sets as well as my past ones.

Subscibe to my mailing list and don't miss out on dancing to my music!

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.

For 2019 there are still some weekends available and I am open for bookings in 2020 already. Check my general calendar which includes my travel plans (grey) too. I might come your way already!

As I am teaching more & more in the UK, I might only travel to a few bigger tango events outside the UK in 2020. So don’t wait too long if you want to dance to my music selection at your tango events. Contact me now

Tango DJ Bärbel on YouTube

I love doing short video clips from the DJ pult during my DJ sets. Since 2018 I have a YouTube Channel “Tango DJ Bärbel Rücker” where I upload 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!
