Our DJ-team:

TDJ Theo Chatzipetros (Athens, Greece)

Dj Theo Chatzipetros (Greece)

Here is what Theo says about himself:

When I'm djing I like to relate with the people on the dance floor. I always try to guess which can be the best choice in order to create a nice wave and I'm making my selection always on the fly, track by track. I often think about the fact that some couples can have the best tanda ever during my set and that's why each tanda should be constructed having a sense, a path, a sort of uniqueness that can match with the uniqueness of dancing. My experience allows me to work like this and I can't imagine another way. .

The music selection is never predictable, spans the entire period of the tango and sometimes I like to surprise the dancers by proposing some rare tracks. The aim is always satisfying the dancers: nice music for dancing, warm atmosphere to enjoy. I'm using lossless files imported from my collection of CDs and LPs and I work with a sound card and professional software in order to guarantee a high sound quality."

TDJ Marco Evola (Rome, Italy)

Dj Marco Evola (Italy)

Marco Evola is a tango DJ since 1998 and has been working in Italy and in other European countries. He proposes traditional music and appreciates to provide simplicity because “the leading figure of the night is not the DJ… but the music…”. .

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 14 years is running her own regular milonga, as well as for almost 11 years organizing several encuentros in Latvia, and playing regularly there music, as well as she has been Dj in tango events in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Italy, Spain, 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 Rene Carbonaro (Villeneuve-De-La-Raho, France)

Dj Rene Carbonaro (France)

Adept of tango milonguero for many years, René is organizer of two well-known encuentros milongueros, "SUR Milonguero" and "2x4 Milonguero". .

Very quickly, he turned his attention to musicalising in the encuentros he organises and is now regularly invited to perform in France and Europe (Spain, Germany, Netherlands).

His program is dynamic, joyful, featuring selections of tandas with orchestration of the 30’s and 40’s, and he knows how to enchant and please the dancers. He uses his sensitivity as dancer to arouse emotion on the dance floor. His greatest pleasure, seeing the smile, emotion and happiness on the face of the dancers.

Don’t miss him!
