- Dariusz Bekała
Hi, my name is Dariusz Bekała, I come from Szczecin, Poland. I have been into tango as a dancer and dj for 11 years, so I am only at the beginning of my adventure with this passion. Personally, I adore orchestras from the 1930s and 1940s, although I also admire some later pearls such as O. Pugliese, A. Gobbi or F. Sassone. When I dj at milongas, I arrange the music in real time – there are no ready-made playlists. I always observe the dancers, trying to notice what they like dancing to most, and I make my best to meet their expectations. I invite you to have great fun, see in on the dancefloor! Darek.

TANGO, THE MUSIC
As a term for describing me putting on music in Milongas I prefer “Musicalizador” than “DJ”, since I don’t mix music.
Like every Musicalizador, my main concern is to match Tango Dancers’ needs, whatever they are. On the dance floor, and just there ? Whether they need to warm up, to walk, to jump around, to rock, to cuddle, to relax, to chill out and so on. And like every Musicalizador, whether he/she likes it or not, I would say I have a profile. Most of all I like lively, joyful and powerful music. My aim is to see people smiling, enjoying and having a blast.
Tango music needs to be danceable and interesting to dance. It sounds banal, so banal and so much taken for granted that sometimes it’s also forgotten as concept. In my opinion, most of this kind of Tango music (and not all of it) we find in the so-called “Época de Oro”. A set needs to have a structure and needs to fit together. At the same time music needs to vary during the night, so it never gets boring and never repeats itself.
I’m an active Musicalizador in Berlin, putting on music regularly in some of the main Milongas of the city, as well as abroad in Festivals and Marathons. I am also co-organizer of two of the Milongas of Berlin, Max & Moritz
- Gaia Pisauro
As a DJ, she mainly works in Berlin, where regularly play on two milongas, “Max and Moritz” and “Loca” (in the past also in “Walzerlinksgestrickt”).
Since 2006 every year she was invited as a guest DJ in Tango Festival Wuppertal, since 2008 she has been playing on many tango marathons and festivals, among others in Rome, London, Riga, Copenhagen, Prague, Budapest.
Gaia describes her tango style as traditional, she loves the Classic Tango Orquestras and she tries to play in alternation between rhythmic and melodic to the attention of the dancers to keep awake. Related to the situation, Gaia may from time to time to play new topics or Alternative tango so that the atmosphere of dance floor is regenerated.

- Paulina Ćwiklińska
I have been dancing since…I do not like to measure the time; tango is unmeasurable and time-independent. I am a DJ of the Polish central coast – I play at milongas in Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia I was a co-organiser of Milonga Atelier in Sopot and now I play at the regular Milonga “Pick and Roll” in Gdansk. My motto as a dj is “people – space – energy – diversity – balance”. The music I play is based on Golden Age tangos, but the time frames are much wider – from 1920s to contemporary renditions of classical tangos.
- Joanna Kozłowska
When tango started to rule her world, the music heard in milongas became equally important. From that point there was only one step to DJing, which she has been doing with passion for years. She puts tangos into harmonious tandas, changing the atmosphere gradually. Her aim is to play the music that the dancers cannot resist dancing to.

He likes Pugliese, but majority of his music is light and rhythmic. His loves Canaro Milongas and Biagi Valses, but his passion is always D’Arienzo.
