TDJ: Oxana Kovalenko (Basel, CH)
Oxana is an internationally travelling Tango-DJ from Basel (Switzerland) and the co-organizer of the famose “Maracuentro” – Tango marathon with Love!
“I began DJing at milongas in 2013 and after the first time I understood that this would be my way in Tango. I do it with pleasure! For me the feedback from the dancers for whom I play my selection of music has a large value. In order to create a special atmosphere in the milongas, I play Tangos from the ’30s up to the ’50s, selecting the sequence of tandas in such a way to smoothly lead the dancers through different musical moods (romantic, dramatic, rhythmic…), in this way filling the milonga with gradually changing emotions. For me the most important thing in DJing at milongas is to see expressions of joy and pleasure in the dancers’ faces: exactly in that moment I am completely happy!”
