Meet Our DJs
We attach a great deal of importance to the music. We know it can make all the difference.
Lua is Italian and lives in Lisbon. She discovered tango by chance in 2004 during a walk along the banks of the Seine River.
She was immediately enchanted. For her, each milonga is unique. Each tanda tells a story. Each tango reminds her of previously danced moments.
Today, her musical selection combines the tastes of all the dancers she met in tango. Since 2011, she has been playing her music at many milongas, encuentros, and events in Portugal and abroad, and organizes milongas in Lisbon (Milonga da Lua).

Graziano Sportelli (Italy)
I started my tango journey in 2005 as a dancer. From the very beginning, I fell in love with tango music and began to learn and learn.
I was given the opportunity to become resident dj of an established milonga in my province. I then began to play music in many other milongas, in the Apulian cities, and also outside the region. Subsequently, my work as a italianisador has been recognized in Italy and in many other European countries, including France, Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Austria, England.
My musical preference is for golden age tango and I always stay within the music of the 20’s and 50’s. Creating the right energy on the track is my prerogative.

He firmly believes that the DJ’s most significant mission is to guide dancers, allowing them to naturally and effortlessly immerse themselves in the emotional flow of the music.
Alan Twigg (Tenerife)
I love playing the beautiful rich music that tango is. It’s a genuine pleasure for me to put together tandas that move people to dance.
There is so much wonderful music to choose from and so much richness and depth. It’s amazing. There are wonderful orchestras, truly talented singers and some incredible combinations of both.
I enjoy playing music from the late 20s through to the 50s, but the majority of the tracks I play are from between 1935 and 1945.
