Ania Poliakova (Brest, Belarus)

It's always hard to say in which part of the world I'm today.
I enjoy people with sense of humor, adventures and of course good tango music. To play for dancers is some kind of magic, how great is it to have a possibility to create the mood for many people and to make them a little bit happier. I mostly prefer delicious classic. My best tandas have been inspired by my dancing friends.

Dasha Sukhorukova (Minsk, Belarus)

Dasha has been DJing for more than 2 years at regular Minsk milongas, Minsk Tango Fusion Marathon. She is a co-organizer of Minsk Spring Tango Festival.
"I'm in love with tango music. Even when I'm only listening to it, my body can't help dancing. At milongas I try to treat dancers with some "yammy" tandas from "Epoca de Oro", however I do not avoid playing younger orchestras. Cannot imagine a milonga without D'Arienzo, Biagi, Di Sarli, Pugliese and Canaro milongas. I also love to have fun and sometimes play foxtrots -- it is crucially important for me to see smiles on people's faces :) "

Alisa Zurmutai (Riga, Latvia)

I love happy dancers :) And I like to influence their mood: to add romance for those in love, energetic music for the active ones, more complicated music - for the warmed up ones. But my favourite thing at a milonga is when the dancefloor becomes one body, when people dance not only with one another and the music, but with other couples, floor, DJ and the space, as though time does not exist. I play the golden age music, but according to the mood there can be dosed inclusions of younger music. And chacarera!!! I love it so much!

Sasha Volcheck (Minsk, Belarus)

“The idea of DJing has always attracted me. But I couldn’t imagine that it would come true in tango! I liked different orchestras in different periods, but D’Arienzo with Hector Maure has always been my favourite. I am attracted by details in music - everything that is not on the forefront. Sometimes you can find there a whole world!”

Lesha Doroschenko (Minsk, Belarus)

“Usually I try to play a lot of Di Sarli and D'Arienzo, adding other good stuff in between. I think that a DJ does a really great job when dancers aren't afraid to miss a good tanda (to chill at the bar or chat with friends) just because they know that there's more wonderful music coming.
I started DJing in Minsk in 2009. I wanted to dance to music I liked and this provided the opportunity. It helped tango in my city to grow and develop as well. Now I enjoy DJing as much as dancing. Over the years I've worked at Ukrainian, Russian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Finnish and of course Belarusian tango events."
