DJ

El Mafioso, Sydney

With a great knowledge and passion for tango, and collection of many rare and unavailable tracks, El Mafioso offers an unforgettable evening for those who appreciate tango.
“I loved Tango since I saw my parents dancing it. I am passionate about tango music - in fact I am almost obsessive about the music, and constantly on a never-ending mission for new music for dancers to enjoy.”

Frank, Berlin

“Since 2005 I am Tango event organiser and Tango DJ. Especially my trips to Buenos Aires followed by intense studies of Tango music and culture gave me the clear vision that a milonga should be accompanied by the best available dance music to make the event as enjoyable as possible for every guest. I genuinely dislike the idea of involuntary dancing breaks in a milonga.”

Tugba, Malmo

Originally from Turkey but now residing in Malmo, Sweden, Tugba is a tango connoisseur and DJ that you definitely do not want to miss. As a DJ she strives to give the dancers the ultimate tango experience with sets primarily from the 30s and 40s. As she is also tanguera she knows that well-selected tandas and adapting the music to the mood of the milonga are the cornerstones of a great milonga. Led by a deep sensibility, she always seeks the right balance between the energetic needs of the dance floor and her personal musical imprint.

Thyne, Hong Kong

Thyne just started DJ’ing in early 2019 for local milongas in Hong Kong.

Simply would like to share the music she likes and those fit for an enjoyable dance.

She loves seeing the energy the music brings to the dance floor, and feel contented with the happy faces after the milongas.

Banting, Seoul

“I started to DJ for Tango O Nada (Seoul) in 2012. In 2015 I was invited to DJ for Korea International Tango Championship & Festival. This will be my first time DJing outside of Korea.”
