DJ Jaana Hänninen (Finland)
Jaana started playing music in milongas along with the creation of her local tango community in 2005. She mainly Dj-es in milongas around Finland as well as international ones. She plays traditional music from late 20-ies to mid 50-ies, in classical tandas with cortinas, paying special attention to the cortinas. Her favourite orchestras are Di Sarli, Troilo and Laurenz. While playing Jaana shows a stand where the dancers can see the name of the orchestra playing, plus what is coming up next. She considers the milonga as an event where people come together not just to dance, but also to socialize and her credo is that DJ is there for the dancers.
DJ PRINZ (Belgium)
Since 2014 DJ Prinz makes dancers smile on. He is a wellknown in Belgium and was spotted at milongas, encuentros and festivals in Europe and Canada. He loves to shape the energy of the milonga, continuouosly playing with tandas of a different intensity, offering a wide range of orchestral styles and refreshing cortinas. He cares about the dance floor, delivering nicely structured and yet playful sets that provoke you to dance on and on. Weather at a local milonga or an international venue, the ingredients remain the same: dancing pleasure, the traditional repertoire and lots of smiles. Let's glow!
DJ Igoris Saburov (Lithuania)
Here is how he states his principles: "I am all tango music lover. At milongas I prefer to put Golden Age music, although I am open-minded and eager to follow the dancers needs of the moment. "
DJ Larisa & Kirill (Russia)
This Djs couple started to put music on milongas at 2010 quite accidentally though they are passionate about tango music from the very first touch to tango in 2003. They prefer the records of 30-th, 40-th и 50-th. They closely follow the trends of modern orchestras and put music based on the dancers mood and energy on the dance floor.
DJ Birger Haugdal (Norway)
Birger is the veteran amongst Norwegian dj`s, with more than ten years of International experience. He describes his dj style as harmonic, but he also plays with more contrast music when that feels right. For him it`s a really important thing to play inspiring and varied music for dancers who prefer traditional tango. Like many other dancers and dj`s, golden age music is the closest to me.
