An avid dancer himself, Varo has a deep appreciation for tango music as a crucial part of the overall milonga experience for each dancer.
As a DJ, Varo strives to create a musical atmosphere that inspires dancers and connects with them on the emotional level.
While DJing, Varo is always connected to the dancers–either by observing the energy and the interactions of the dancefloor, or dancing in the middle of it.
In addition to selecting good individual tango songs, Varo pays detailed attention to the structure of the playlist. He comprises the tandas and the relationship of tandas to each other to establish a harmonious flow of the energy, and to develop emotional-energetic contrasts with a tasteful climax and rise that resonate within each dancer.
Varo regularly DJ’s at milongas in Los Angeles and Southern Calfornia. He has DJ’d along with Otros Aires and Narcotango.
Varo is also invited to DJ tango at festivals all over the US.
