Karolina has fallen in love first with tango as a dance, shortly after that the curiosity and the passion for the music surfaced.
Initial explorations of tango music led her to the fascination with traditional music, especially from the 30s and 40s. She believes that the task
of a DJ is to create a unique mood and comfort for the dancers over and over again with each tanda throughout the night. Each dance should
be a new journey for the dancers, “el viaje que dura sólo tres minutos” (a trip that lasts only three minutes). Before she plays a tanda she
always asks herself, “Would I really want to dance it now, myself?”
For the last couple of years Karolina was a resident DJ for the Charlottesville tango scene (USA), which was her tango home, where she wanted
to introduce the spirit of “Porteño y Bailarín” and/or “Salón Canning”, and where she managed to attract even the most traditional and picky
tangueros from the area.
Currently Karolina lives in Lodz (Poland) and DJs at European events, like Lodz Tango Salon Festival, Devoradores Tango Marathon in Wroclaw
or Strawberry Marathon in Lodz.

Meng is a DJ for the dancers. Being a very active social dancer himself all over the world, he takes pride in providing rhythm, energy as well as emotional depth to the dancers on the floor. His up-tempo but sometimes romantic DJ-ing style features the most popular classic orchestras, generating an exciting vibe for the dancers and often keeping them dancing non-stop throughout the night.
His early DJ influence came from non-other than the Maestro of musicality himself, Chicho Frumboli, who spent a lot of time lecturing to Meng on how to play the right music for the dance floor.
Wang Meng has DJ-ed for international tango festivals such as Singapore, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, Montreal, Toronto, Seattle, Vancouver, Palm Springs, as well as Shanghai.
