Tangomarathon: Austrian Alpine Abrazo

We are proud to present our great DJ team and official photographer for this years Alpine Abrazo:



Deborah Segantini

Selection of traditional music that ranges from 30s to 50s. I construct tandas as a dancer and I select them according to the interpretation of the messages coming from the dance floor, in the belief that the DJ should provide service to the dancers. I play music with a dual purpose: to free the largest number of chairs in the room and... satisfy the ear of those who, by will, fatigue or a bit of bad luck, remain seated. The rarest piece of the evening is never just for ears and I try to propose it with respect to the balance created during the evening. Deep respect and sincere admiration for Piazzolla's tango, but I reserve the right to hear it at home with a good red wine glass.

Fabiòla Loik

Fabiòla simply offers traditional argentine tango nice to dance. She has djed in many milongas in the North East of Italy and in international events like Experiencia Milonguera in Villa Giacomelli, Terra Milonguera in Ljubliana, Raduno Rural in Zapreval, Festival alle Terme di Dobrna, V Milonga sin Fronteras, Festival Que Tango Lindo in Linz and many others. She lives, dances, loves and studies tango in Triest.

Matthias Bellemann

Matthias is a connoisseur and passionate collector of tango music, always hunting for the best quality sources available on this planet. He uses studio-grade audio equipment to provide the dancers with the highest possible level of musical fidelity. Matthias is regularly invited to DJ in some of the most prestigious milongas and festivals in Buenos Aires and Europe. He pays special attention to the melodic and rhythmic composition of the tandas in order to create a high level of flow and energy during the event. Selecting the masterpieces of tango history from the late ’20s to the mid ’60s, he likes to inspire the dancers and to carry them through space and time.

Stefan Wimmer

Stefan is a dancer. And he loves music. That’s why he’s TJing. Soon after he started dancing he also began TJing back in 1998. Since then he’s grown out to one of the house TJs in El Corte. He’s providing the music during the Chain Salons (together with other TJs) and at the Doble Ocho festival. Besides that he’s TJing both at big festivals & small local milongas all over Europe.

At the end it’s all about the old saying: “What kind of music do you like?” “Good music.”

Theo "El Greco" Chatzipetros

Theo plays traditional music from the late twenties to the late fifties with particular reference to the forties and his aim is to create a rhythmic wave for the dancers to enjoy by adapting the musical selection according to the dancers mood. He was a member of the association Tangofirenze based in Impruneta and co-founder of the Raduno milonguero of Impruneta where he was Dj resident between 2007 and 2014. He played in 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.
