a_MiltonAzevedo

Milton “El Gallo” Azevedo hails from Boston-ish (MA, USA). He DJs regularly all across the northeast, primarily in New England, and has also DJ big events such as: “Puerto Rico Tango Marathon” (San Juan, PR), “ESO” (Buffalo, NY), “Boston” (Cambridge, MA), TTX and Tango 8 Fest (Toronto, ON), and Montréal Loves Tango Festival (Montréal, QC). His approach to DJing mirrors his approach to tango. He looks to connect with the people in the room, carefully selecting songs, tandas, and even cortinas to create a mood that accentuates the experience for each dancer present. Be careful, his exuberant energy is infectious! Occasionally, you may find him out on the floor instead of behind his computer, orchestrating the experience and engaging with the crowd.
