DJ Silencio Azul
For him, DJ-ing is an art of caring about the music what inspires us to dance. He carefully chooses each musical piece in harmony with the whole milonguero's emotional spectrum . He starts with the "spirit of each Orquestra Típica" and his aim is to create the space to get the beautiful and happy experience to everyone. Being a DJ in traditional milongas an Encuentros milongueros is a great responsibility since "milongueros" highly appreciate the close embrace and the music interpretation. That is why Silencio's milonga should be closer to the feeling of "a heaven dance".
