DJ Hans Peter Salzer (D)

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.
DJ Salima Barzanti (I)
It was by chance that Salima discovered the world of tango. The first time she approached a mixer was many years ago, at the milonga her school had held in the main square in the town centre of Conegliano (Treviso, Italy). From that moment, she has been completely involved in expanding her musical knowledge, always with the dancers’ beating hearts in mind.
Salima’s tango is traditional, yet never ordinary. She’s resident TDJ at “Blumilonga” in Conegliano since 2014. She regularly plays at events, encuentros and milongas in Italy and abroad.
Her motto is “First of all, energy on the dance floor!”
DJ Theo Chatzipetros (GR/I)
Theo plays traditional music from the late twenties to the late fifties with particular focus on the forties, aiming to create a rhythmic wave the dancers can enjoy. He is adapting the selected music attuned to the dancers mood.
He has been a member of the “Association Tangofirenze” based in Impruneta and he also is the co-founder of the “Raduno milonguero of Impruneta” where he was resident DJ between 2007 and 2014. He played at various milongas, encuentros, festivals and marathons in Austria, Italy, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, UK and he gives Dj workshops and musicality stages.
