(Belarus/Poland)

The main goal of my DJ-ing is to make people happy so that they breathe in at the beginning of the milonga and breathe out after the cumparsita. As a professional musician, I hear tango music in a special way and want to share my vision with the guests of a milonga.

I love Golden age music with a little bit of Guardia Vieja and modern orchestras. I also pay special attention to cortinas, which help create the right milonga atmosphere.

Alisa Zurmutai
(Latvia)

“I think the role of the DJ is to help people enjoy themselves and have fun whether they are dancing, chatting or chilling. DJ has an awesome possibility to co-create a space where daily routines are forgotten, and awesome memories are made. I think regular life tends to be way too serious, so, on the contrary I mostly select tango and cortinas that will give more light, fun, romance and even silliness vibes.”

Jaana Hänninen
(Finland)

“Playing music at milongas started around 2006. I mainly DJ at milongas around Finland, but also internationally. I play traditional music from the late 20-ies to mid-50-ies and I play in classical tandas, trying also to give special attention to the cortinas.

I see the milonga as an event where people come together to dance but also to socialize. I try to build my set to be rewarding for the dancers and to grow more intensive towards the end of the milonga. I think that the DJ is there for the dancers, and I enjoy DJing most when I feel that the communication with the dancers works and the atmosphere is good.”
