Friday afternoon milonga


I am a tanguera since 1995 and started DJ’ing in Ghent in 2002. Meanwhile I had the pleasure DJ’ing on a regular basis at milongas in Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent and Lille (France). In Brussels my DJ’ing is regularly combined with performances of orchestras like Sexteto Milonguero, Ciudad Baigon, Orquesta El Cachivache, Sexteto Roberto Siri, Alejandro Ziegler… Lately I was invited to entertain festivals in Brussels since 2011 and Copenhagen (2014). Would it surprise you I mainly stick to the traditional tango repertoire from the late Twenties till the early Fifties? I mix romantic, rhythmic and lyrical tandas with surprising cortinas. As a DJ I am at the service of the dancers, being alert for their flow and energy level, making sure everybody leaves the milonga smiling. Sin Rumbo Fijo is my favourite valse and if you want to learn more about me and my other favourites, do not miss the apéro milonga!
