KAREL YON (France)
Karel discovered tango and Argentina 10 years ago and since then it has been a love story.
His musicalisation is inspired by the diversity of the milongas of Buenos Aires, where he regularly visits, from the most traditional where the código structures the harmony of the ball to the emerging scenes where the renewal of contemporary orchestras is bubbling.
As a dancer, he is attentive to the energy of his sets as much as to their finesse and melodic richness.
DOÑA TIZIANA - (Italy)
She has been a passionate dancer for many years.
With the name of DOÑA TIZIANA, she started played music over 5 years ago. Her repertoire goes from the ‘30s to the early ‘50s, with a focus in the ‘40s, that she considers the most expressive period of tango.
Her high sensitivity in monitoring the ballroom and the dancers allows her to create energy and the “buena onda”, shifting dynamic pieces to more intimate ones, searching constantly for giving back to the ball room the energy received. She is often invited to play music in Apulia, in Italy and in the international events.
DAVID GONZALEZ - (Spain)

JOHN YINGREN TAN (Regno Unito)
I used to be a simple man who doesn’t do any dancing or music related activities, however few years ago I have been diagnosed and suffered from a chronic tango addiction, transformed me into a fanatic milonguero. Finding the cure, I am currently undergoing a daily high dosage of tango music prescription to ease this illness.
My DJ inspirations come from the dancers; the responses from the dance floor instigate the music I play. I always like to make things simple, music I play range from guardia vieja to the epoca de oro and always involve a wide variety of the newer tango from 1950 / 60s.
I like to create waves between songs and tandas, strong rhythm and high energy.
I am determined to let the dancer feel the sentiments of every piece of the classic I play, sharing the most precious 12 minutes with their partners within a tanda.
It is not important what I play, I normally let the dancers decide what to come next, I only help to create the best moment for everyone. The only thing I dictate is when the dancers stop dancing in milonga, but this is something that I will never let them, because I play for the dancers and the true dancers only.
THEO CHATZIPETROS (Grecia/Italia)
When I'm djing I like to relate with the people on the dancefloor, I always try to guess which can be the best choice in order to create a nice wave and I'm making my selection always on the fly, track by track (I do not use "fixed" tandas). I often think about the fact that some couples can have the best tanda ever during my set and that's why each tanda should be constructed having a sense, a path, a sort of uniqueness that can match with the uniqueness of dancing. The music selection is predominantly classical and never predictable, spans the entire period of the tango and sometimes I like to surprise the dancers by proposing some rare tracks. The aim is always satisfying the dancers: nice music for dancing, warm atmosphere to enjoy. I'm using lossless files imported from my collection of CDs and LPs and I work with a sound card and professional software in order to guarantee a high sound quality.
I was a member of the team who organized milongas and the encuentro at Impruneta, the first one in europe (2005-2013). I started to Dj in 2007 and since then I have played in regular milongas, encuentros, marathons and festivals all across europe.
