He has been DJing for over 17 years, playing tandas at milongas, festivals and encuentros in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Latvia and Spain. He always chooses danceable energetic feel-good music from the Golden Age Orchestras and ever in function of the dancers on the pista.
Hans Peter Salzer (Germany)DJ-Salzer, alias Hans Peter Salzer, is an international Tango-DJ, living in Ravensburg, near Lake Constance. In this region he is DJ-ing since 1999 – meanwhile he also works for international events, like Milongas, Festivals, Tango-Balls and Encuentros.
From the beginning of his Tango-Life he has been delighted by the richness of melodies and the musical variety in the traditional tangos. His favourite tangos are going like an infective fluid into heart, brain and feet.
Mariella Lazarro (Italy)
Mariella has been organising international events and evenings since 2008.
She is a DJ in local milongas and co-organiser of the Encuentros La Parada Milonguera, Mimos y Tango and Florencia Milonguera.
She started making music in her milonga in Padua (Italy) for 6 years and soon she was invited in other milongas and festivals in the same region as well as in other places abroad.
She likes to keep energy on the dance floor while nurturing the emotions of the dancers with a nuanced selection of music from the late 1930s to the 1950s, favouring the emotion of the group and the intimacy of each dance.

Jo Switten (Belgium)
Jo Switten, also known as deejay El Huracán, came into contact with Tango Argentino in the late 1980s. He took his first lessons in 1990 and immediately fell in love with the music, the dance and the social aspects of the milongas. At the time, there were not many opportunities to dance, so he started collecting tango records and began DJing at national and international tango parties. During his several trips to Buenos Aires, he completed his collection. Jo is passionate about tango but is not a librarian or archivist of tango music. He strongly believes that a good milonga is about fun, about the pleasure of dancing and being together, without losing the authentic character of a true Argentine salón de tango. Prepare for an evening of dancing and a good atmosphere. Los esperamos por una noche de garufa!
