Vania Rey
Friday Night DJ
Colorful Milonga

Vania began DJing tango in 2008, and over the years she has witnessed a constant evolution both in her musical preferences and in her DJ style. A tango teacher since 2002, her greatest strength as a DJ has been to stay conscious of that development, because it permits her to relate to and play for dancers with wide spread of experience and skill levels.

 

Aside from hosting/DJing a monthly milonga in Austin, TX, she travels regularly to teach and DJ tango around the world, thus far having had the opportunity to play for dancers in over 50 cities on 3 continents. Those events include the big, national festivals and marathons, but also the more intimate, local milongas, including various locations in Buenos Aires.

 

Vania maintains a close network of tango DJ friends, which has been a way to share and discuss ideas about history, trends, fashions, and technology in the ever-changing tango music world.
