SERCAN YIĞIT & ZEYNEP AKTAR

Both in their dance and their lifestyle as a couple, Sercan Yiğit and Zeynep Aktar have a distinctive point of view, embracing communication and innovation, always remembering the lively, respiring "human touch" of the tango dance.

Sercan and Zeynep's dance manifests aesthetics, harmony and musicality with an intense, yet unpretentious style, where one can almost breathe in the excitement surrounding their aura.

At classes, they give examples from everyday life, not enforcing strict rules, letting the student understand the very nature of tango intuitively. "We observe our students, and every student has a different way of understanding, solidifying and perfecting their dance. It is a journey," says Sercan. "We are constantly learning while we are teaching. Tango wasn't bestowed upon us. We are making the same journey as our students."

DJ MELISA

Sarajevo / B&H

THURSDAY 27/06
21:30-03:00
GRAN MILONGA
 / Great Hall

Melisa is a co-organizator of The Sarajevo Tango Festival – growing and vibrant international tango event.
Melisa has been actively engaged in the phenomenon of Argentine tango and visits various tango events in the region, Europe and the world, which nurture this culture, music and dance, to improve her knowledge and skills.

DJ RADO

Ljubljana / Slovenia

FRIDAY 28/06 
21:30-03:00
GRAN MILONGA 
/ Great Hall

Back in the days when we were scratching our records on Technics SL-1200 turntables, I used to dj in clubs and discotheques for more than nine years. Fast forward a decade to a cold February evening and witness my first tango steps. Months passed and ears got used to scratchy old recordings faster than my body to pivoting and dissociating. With my background, becoming a tango DJ was only natural.

Since 2011 I’ve enjoyed selecting danceable tango music and caressing the ears of tangueras and tangueros with exquisite cortinas as a resident DJ in Tango bar Ljubljana, later 100 % Tango and many other regular milongas in Slovenia.

DJ Pino

Stockholm / Sweden

SATURDAY 29/06
21:30-03:00
GRAN MILONGA 
/ Great Hall

Pino Dangiola has been a dj for many years now, earning him the respect and position as one of the best djs from Sweden. He has been the dj in numerous festivals and marathons.

High energy mixed with romantic and melodic tandas. Always with the dancers in mind and making the wave continue the entire evening.

Playing with Vinyl records is an amazing experience for the dancers, who not only can feel and hear the difference in sound. The vibrating sound of the needle, makes it more like a live music experience. Anything can happen since the needle on a turntable can jump!

His versatile repertoire ranges from 20′s and 50′s tango to modern orchestras with pronounced danceable rhythms.

Always in a fine compilation of tandas and cortinas. He plays music according to the feelings of the moment and the people in the dance floor. His programming is dynamic, joyful, the very image of his temperament is reproduced in his tandas. Seeing the smile, the emotion and the happiness on the faces dancers delights him and make happy to be with you.
