Pierre_M, DJ and vidéo-jockey (traditional)
In 2006, Pierre_M starts to learn Argentine tango in Marseille, his home town. He then travels to many places in Europe to dance and discover the European capitals and local tango communities. After four years in Berlin, he makes a name of himself as a traditional DJ in the world of international festivals.
His original profession as a director led him to develop a concept of projection and live video mixing (VJing) previously unseen in the world of tango, that he had practised years before in the electronic music environment. Based on old tango movies and movies from the 1940s, this concept was presented in many international tango festivals, in Buenos Aires during collaborations with Otros Aires and Electrocutango, and more recently in marathons and milongas in Europe. Visual poetry, traditional tango music, presentation of the orchestras and visual cortinas come one after another until the end of the night, with the aim of sharing the music and the passion for dancing.
Demonstration by Karin Emrich (Germany) and Luis Blanc (Argentina).

OtrosTangos team was created at the end of 2015 so to organise alternative performances (milongas, workshops...) for the festival Tangopostale. It gathers local DJs interested by the alternative tango movement and invites international DJs. Otherwise Otros Tangos initiated the "Tango Flash" which announces the festival and the 'Tango and History' walks.
