Marta Silvestre lives in Oporto, where she is the resident DJ at the emblematic weekly milonga ‘La Galeria Ideal’. She started to dance Tango in 2008 and from 2010 begins to get more intimate with tango music and slowly get into the “musicalizator” life. She was playing at several international tango marathons as ‘La Cita de los Amigos’ (Belgium), ‘Tango Jam’ (Germany), ‘The Big Pop’ (UK), ‘Belle Epoque’ (Italy), ‘Milonga des 4 Saisons’ (France), ‘Tuga Tango Marathon’ (Portugal).” and also a the International Tango Festival in Portugal, Lisbon and Oporto.
About her way to Dj, we could resume it in a short definition “High Energy” but she’s also a very good “milonga reader” and she´s always find to manage the dancers into the right mood.
When she plays, travelling around the magical Tango Golden Age Era, each tanda whispers a story and D’Arienzo is definitely her favorite storyteller. So you will want to stay tuned!
