The DJ is Njål
The photo shows DJs at a festival in Hamburg. Njål
is the man with the hat. After living in Buenos
Aires, Njål and his wife Cidinha moved to the UK
Luna y Molino tango.
Using a high
level of improvisation, Njål chooses the music by
assessing the mood of the milonga and reading the dance
floor. He structures the music to generate waves
of energy with mainly smooth transitions and a climax at
the end of the milonga.
