Our DJ-team:

TDJ Wolfgang Weuste (Germany)

Dj Wolfgang Weuste (Germany)

Here is what Wolfgang says about himself:

"I started djing in 2016 to dive even deeper into the music. Besides djing in local milongas in Germany, I got the opportunity to DJ in many European countries. .

The tradiotional music of the 30s and 40s, but also some of the 50s and 20s, are my preference. I pay attention to the flow and dynamic within a Tanda as well to the flow and energy throughout the milonga. My aim is to get the dancers with the first song on the dance floor and don’t let them anymore leave it always staying in touch with the needs of the dancers."

TDJ Ivan Cordisco (Italy)

Dj Ivan Cordisco (Italy)

Here is wha Ivan says about himself: .

"I have been playing music for many years in encuentras and milongas in Italy and abroad.

I organize Alba Miloguera, has the seventh edition recently and the now famous Airportango New Year's Eve.

I choose carefully the songs during the evening, trying to return the energy coming from the dancefloor. Cortinas of folk and southern music are my "trademark"."

TDJ Ieva Drevina (Latvia)

Dj Ieva Drevina (Latvia)

Ieva started to Dj in 2008. All these years she have played in the local milongas, for more than 13 years is running her own regular milonga and playing regularly there music, as well as she has been Dj in tango events in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, France, Russia and Belarus.

As a Dj Ieva plays traditional music - mostly tango of 1930-ties and 1940-ties and also some little older or little newer tandas. When Dj-ing she tries to create smooth flow of music – all her tandas and cortinas makes one united story of the milonga. She tries to connect with the dancers on the dance floor, feel their energy and mood to offer them pleasant, danceable, interesting and energetically charging music with a slight sentimental touch.

TDJ Igoris Saburov (Vilnius, Lithuania)

Dj Igoris Saburov (Vilnius, Lithuania)

Here is what Igoris says about himself: "I love all tango music. In milongas I prefer to play music of Golden Era, although I am not categorical and try to feel the interest of the dancing people." .

Igoris has been Dj-ing in many, many events in all over Europe and also many times in the Riga Embrace events. We are very glad to welcome him in our Dj-team again!
