DJ Kaja Keil

Kaja thinks of herself as a pure social tango dancer and from time to time as hobby DJ. She has been dancing since childhood, mainly different folk dances. Even while working on other professions, dancing has always remained her passion.

Kaja started learning Argentinian tango naturally and spontaneously while living in Buenos Aires for a longer period of time, where she found herself suddenly in the era of ladies and gentlemen of the 20s/30s – a period where her soul always seemed to belong. A Moveable Feast!

As a tango DJ, Kaja trusts her inner voice and tries to create a particular and special atmosphere for every single milonga, considering the mood of the dancers at the pista at a given moment in time. She also carefully selects her cortinas, which have to support the whole structure of the evening … Telling stories with her music and maybe not being too sophisticated. Her favourite orchestras keep changing, but she favours the classical build-up of a milonga, starting with simple rhythms with good energy, and reaching to the dramatic and melancholic moments, thus leading the dancers through a kaleidoscope of emotions throughout the evening.
