DJ Monica Suteu

I grew up in a musical family, where music was always present. I enjoyed an intensive musical education for many years, during which I first came into contact with tango. For quite a while, tango music accompanied me, before I started to learn to dance tango. Music continued to play a capital role even then. The richness and complexity of tango music, in particular that of the Edad de Oro, mesmerizes me, as a dancer as well as at the DJ controls.

The right tango music sends my directly to the dancefloor, where I surrender to the music. It fills me with emotion and joy, to notice on peoples' faces and in their dance that I can evoke the same spell with my selection.

I regularly play at traditional milongas and festivals around the world. These have included regular Berlin milongas like El Ocaso, Nochero Soy, El Aleman, international festivals like Tango Remolino DJ Festival, Trasnochando and Tango Salon Festival Łódź, and even some milongas in Buenos Aires (Derecho Viejo at Club Gricel, Yira, Yira).

Fun fact: Monica loves opera. Her current favorite is Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Stauss.
