As a passionate pianist, dancing tango inevitably led me to dive deep into tango music. I studied and played in several tango orchestras, but found my place in musicalizing the milongas. My aim is to connect via the music with ourselves and each other. I lead you through the whole spectrum of emotions with a reliable stream of delicate, romantic, rhythmic, energetic and dramatic tangos.

I retune tangos to their original tempo and pitch, which sounds more natural and much better. Analyzing speed/pitch variations, I found that most tangos have been transferred at incorrect speeds (see http://tangodjduo.nl). I display and announce my tanda-info with a projector on the wall.

I am a regular DJ at international tango events and a resident DJ at various milongas in the Netherlands.
