Sebas_Age Age & Sebastián
This dj is an enthusiastic maratonero. He spends many weekends dancing and dj-ing outside Amsterdam, but once a month he is in his hometown to organize the classical salon el Cielo. Age’s project on retuning tangos to their correct speed and pitch led to more awareness of this problem among djs and cooperation with TangoTunes (see and listen http://tangodjduo.nl/). With the Matinées Age is happy to contribute to the marathon feel of this event: non-stop dancing and having a dinner together.
