DJane Mari Olschewski (GER) from Hamburg:

Music and creativity have always been important in her life and she has been dancing Tango for 24 years. Because she was looking for more variety and wanted to dance to the music that touched her more personally, she became a DJane.
She plays regularly in and around Hamburg, as well as at various national and international Marathons and Neo-Events. She has been part of the DJ team at NeoTangoRave and Phantastango for 10 years.
Her music is very versatile, Jazz, Electro, Blues, Folk, Rock, Ambient, Oriental, Neo-Classical, Contemporary Tango....
Mari lives by the water and with her music, you are floating on a wave through the evening. ​Creating a playlist is a creative act for her. 
For Mari, Neo-Tango means: listening, getting involved, immersing yourself, trying out, discovering, not having to be perfect and having fun.

DJ Thierry (FRA) - Thierry is above all a creative dancer who “lives” the music. He practiced many social dances( (swing, blues, salsa, tango...) before starting to DJ Neo tango. Of course, he loves tango from the golden age, but what makes him vibrate is to open, enrich, and mix practices toward new musical and corporeal horizons which brings him to Neo. Nice melodies, emotion, and changes in rhythms and intensity are Thierry's music markers. Thierry is co-organizer of several festivals: Neo Tango Toulouse (TNT), Neo Tango Bruges (NTB), Neo Tango Amsterdam (NTA), Neo Tango Meissen (NTM), and now Neo Tango Hamburg but also the Toulouse Fusion weekend (Fusion dance festival).

DJ Fabio (ITA) It was in his hometown of Naples that Fabio discovered Tango in 2009. As a yoga teacher, he has been working for years on this union between body and mind through the power of music to create moments where time stops and you are transported into another dimension. In 2010 he began a personal search for the discovery of modern rhythms and melodies (jazz, ethnic, classical, pop, rock, rap, indie, modern orchestras, etc...) that can be interpreted using the codes of tango through all kinds of music. In 2013 he Came to settle in Nice, he imported his neo-tango musicality and gave a new breath to the life of Tango with his milongas where traditional tango meets alternative tango and barriers are erased by emotions. He participated as a DJ in many international festivals and marathons in Europe (France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Finland) choosing to tell, through his musical selections, a story made of sensitivity and emotions, allowing dancers to freely interpret their feelings.

DJ Iwan harlan (GER) & DJane Isabella (GER)

Since 2006, they've been DJing, both together and individually. Their mission from the outset has been to explore the entire spectrum of possible tango music. Anything that makes them want to dance Tango to it is welcome. Every style is permitted if they can and want to dance Tango to it. This can be challenging and is rarely easy listening. Moreover, Iwan's multifaceted role as a composer and music producer, boasting 9 album releases across genres such as neo-tango, world music, soul, funk, Caribbean, cinematic, and ambient styles, greatly enriches the extensive repertoire of their DJ artistry.


Neo VJs Presentation :


VJ Andreas (GER) is a photo, video, and concept artist. He came to tango in 2005 and has since been interested in dance and music, both in the so-called traditional field and in alternative concepts. In 2015 he expanded his artistic work to the field of visual live performance. Since then, his live performances can be found at many neo-tango events in Europe. He takes the mood of the music and the dancers and transforms it live into visual elements. These are created by mixing and changing various graphic elements in real-time, and in turn, influence the dancers. He calls his live performance Visual Dancing. The content he uses comes partly from his exhibitions, were created by him, especially for Visual Dancing, and comes from artist friends or from publicly available sources. In 2019, he established ultra-widescreen visuals up to image formats of 72:9 in the neo-tango scene - not every projector now projects the same image content, but a wide image is projected across several projectors. In 2020 and 2021, he created the artistic concept of NeotangoTV and played virtual dance floors with his visuals for more than 300 hours. He also created virtual stages for streamed live concerts by Carlos Libedinsky and the Steamed Tango Project.
