Le sue serate, sono molto energiche, morbide, mai banali, mai ripetitive, mai scontate, si nota immediatamente che c'è un dialogo continuo tra lui ed i ballerini, un filo invisibile che unisce tutto e tutti con grande energia, ascoltandosi tutto il tempo. Ha musicalizzato in diverse città italiane come Milano, Parma, Reggio Emilia, Pescara, Roma, Verona, Genova, Caserta, Salerno, Trento, Bolzano, Bari, Treviso, Siviglia e molti altre... è felice di essere ancora una volta con voi a musicalizzare.


DJ PUNTO Y BRANCA

Jorge Vacca is Argentine, his parents were tango dancers, and when he was young, he listened to 24-hour tango (but every night he was listening to the Beatles radio).
In Argentina he collaborated for an important comic book magazine. In the early 1990s, the great Hugo Pratt launched the idea of coming to Italy to work at the Corto Maltese magazine, and moved to Milan, where he founded Topolini Editions and the La Cueva art gallery, home to many events cultural. In 2001, LaCueva TangoClub inaugurated, a weekly event called "Milan's Night of Worship", where they meet to hear its sophisticated tangos de ayer y hoy selections, young colored hairs, tattoos and piercings and sophisticated milonguers of old age.

Initially Punto y Branca were in two; One was a regular drinker from Punt and Mes and the other by Fernet Branca and at that time the first record of the orchestra Fernandez Fierro was also released, one of the songs titled Punto y Branca. No sooner said than done.
He tells that he loves his musicalizador's work, for the ceaseless communication it involves, for the energy that comes out of the floor when people dance. It is always very concentrated, present en cuerpo y alma. He never prepares a playlist, the meter he uses in selecting the tangos is the continuous modulation of the presence of people on the floor "how to deal with a foal that you have to squander when you go and you have to hurry when it's trotting." A continuous feedback with the floor.
