Alicia Rico-Lazarowski

Alicia grew up in Buenos Aires in a milonguero home. Her parents, milongueros of the Golden Age, transmitted their love for tango music and dance to Alicia since an early age. Tango music flows through her veins. After moving to the US, Alicia became an active member of the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill (The Triangle) tango community. In 2013, she (and her husband Eduardo) founded Durham Tango. In addition to her pivotal role as a tango community organizer, as well as instructor and dancer, Alicia’s innate knowledge of tango music made her a popular DJ.

Since 2012, she have been invited to musicalize in regional and national Tango events, including Milonga Maleva (Charlotte, NC), Tango Gipsy (Asheville, NC), Charleston Tango Society (SC), Augusta Marathon (GA), Milonga La Porteña (Atlanta GA), Two Moon Tango Encuentro (Santa Fe, NM), Salida Milonguero Tango Encuentro (CO), Chicago Milonguero Festival (IL), Cincinnati CAT Tango Marathon (OH), the Spoleto Tango festival (Charleston, SC), Columbia Marathon (SC), En Tu Abrazo Encuentro (Chicago, IL), and the Queen City Tango Marathon (Charlotte NC). In 2015, Alicia was invited to musicalize in her native Argentina at La Minimilonga in the city of Mar del Plata. She is an active member of the Club de los Musicalizadores de Tango (The Club of the DJs) of Argentina since 2015.

Inspired by renowned DJ Carlos Rey of El Beso in Buenos Aires, Alicia’s music stays loyal to the bulletproof music of the Golden Age. While DJing, she keeps an eagle eye on the dancers and their response to the music. She is best known for her dynamic management of the energy on the dance floor throughout the milonga.
