Knowledge base

Sponsorship, Donation, Membership

When you tell the story to a friend, you already helped us. However, financial support, whether through direct sponsorship or smaller donations, or by becoming a member, is the most important vehicle for TITAF.

To this day, there is no other institution (worldwide!) that has the knowledge and experience to archive and digitalize Tango shellacs as TITAF has gained over the years. We love to collaborate with experts in the field, but cannot wait until somebody else picks up the ball – it might be too late then.



Our team is currently spread out between Austria, Argentina and the USA. There we can be found at concerts, milongas, festivals and other cultural events. In case you fancy a good glass of red wine, get in contact to catch up with us there. For business related issues, please schedule a meeting with us.

We live in the digital world of computers and need to rest our ears. – In all seriousness: At the moment, there is no way we can put a person behind the phone in 3 different time zones. Sorry! In cases, where email won’t suffice for communication, we can always arrange a phone call.

Uh-oh, sorry to hear! Please simply drop us a short email and we will try our best to help you with the issue as soon as possible.


Every shellac deserves a good transfer.
