ANTHONY - EL MAFIOSO (Sydney, Australia)
I loved Tango since I saw my parents dancing it. I run a Tango School in Sydney “Tango Spirit” as well as run DJ Classes in Sydney and around the world (www.tangodj.com.au). At milongas, which is the night of dancers, lovers of the beloved tango, I play music that people enjoy dancing to - Tango that makes you come back to the dance floor for more. I am passionate about tango music, in fact I am almost obsessive about the music. I am a resident DJ at one of the most traditional milongas in Sydney held twice a month. Been invited to many places around the world: Santiago, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Buenos Aires, as well as this year to Europe and Turkey.

RICARDO TAN (Shanghai, China)
Being Co-Founder of the legendary Vida Mia Tango Cub and one of the first tango DJs in Beijing, Ricardo has both witnessed and influenced the now flourishing tango DJ scene in the Chinese capital city. After relocating to Shanghai in early 2014,he quickly established a good reputation for answering the call of the tango community for quality tango music in the local milongas.
Ricardo's work is driven by his desire to serve the floor with the most danceable music at the right moment. Golden Age tango constitutes the baseline of his DJ repertoire with occasional excursions into both earlier and later interpretations of tango classics. Listening and dancing to a tanda arranged by Ricardo, you will quickly recognize the time and love invested into arousing the dancers’ deepest emotions.
