I'm very glad to be back in the marathon DJ team.
Last year we danced under the stars overlooking the sea. And this stunning Greece women...! It made me even more romantic with tango choices as I usually do.
Last year it was a paradise. And I want to put the best music this year all the time: on milongas, by the pool, on the beach, in the car!
See you in Halkidiki!

Over the past seven years I have deejayed in numerous festivals, marathons and milongas all over Greece and some abroad. Deejaying gives me the chance to study tango music in depth but also with a purpose. I am very fond of strong beat which usually dominates my dj sets. I love maestros like Donato, D' Arienzo and Biagi.
Tango is my life. Appart from deejaying, I am a teacher and performer. Together with my partner we own one of the best known tango schools in Athens. Some years ago we formed the "T4tango" group, collaborating with musicians and actors, and we produce our own theater performances.

I started to collect tango digital music since 2007. Even though I didn't know how to dance tango I liked to have this genre in my library. Tango dancing came later and the music came in handy.
I like to play clear and profound tandas that have something important to tell. I want my music to make people connect, to be simple, easy and natural. I love to make people dance! I try to figure out their energy potential on it.
We can try to create new energy (interesting, but risky). We can also go with the flow and maybe influence a very little bit, enough to challenge the dancers. I love to put light melodic tandas, with chilly rhythmical ones but i love to spice it up with fluid and playful milongas and waltzes. I never miss to put at least a surprise tanda per night. I'm a romantic, my favourite tanda is Di Sarli with Florio.

Being a professional dancer since 1987 and an argentine tango teacher since 2005, it is quite natural that I have grown to love tango music.
My next professional step was to work as a DJ in numerous milongas and tango festivals, playing the music that I love. I have huge amounts of tango music waiting to be danced by enthusiastic tango lovers. My travels all over the world offered me the chance to possess both mainstream as well as rare tango songs that deserve to be heard. Each song has its own story and a hidden meaning that can be expressed through the art of dancing. My tango music always bewitches the audience that want to dance till dawn. I derive my rhythm from the dancers and grant them a restless dancing beat.
My endless passion for tango dance and music makes me one of the most crazy DJs in the (known) world!

I love music from very young and joined the national school where I studied the piano. Much later in 2003 I discovered argentinian tango and have been addicted. Dawn! Probably forever... In 2010 I created El Recodo Tango school in Bordeaux (France) where I'm teaching. I also played in several international events.
If you don't know me yet as a DJ you probably found my online articles, tango music database or the famous game Tango Music Quiz on the Web. If you don't know it yet, I strongly invite you to have a look...
I like good mixes of classics from golden age, best melodies, orchestras, and bla bla bla... Get ready to hear my best tracks this summer.
