DAMIAN BOGGIO was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1972.
He has been a tango dj since 1999.
He has played music in Buenos Aires´s best milongas between 2000 and 2010 ("Salón Canning", "La Nacional", "El Beso", "Porteño y Bailarín", "CITA", "La Noche de Gavito"), learning from the great and passionate porteño (born in, belonging or related to Buenos Aires) dancers, known as “old milongueros“ (old milonga dancers), who frequented their “tango, friends and drinks nights”.
Between 2006 and 2010 he organizesd his “Mina Milonga” in Salón Canning, every tuesday, presenting the best dancers and orchestras live.
Since 2004 he travels to Europe, proposing his distinctive (unmistakable) music playing style. Up to now he played music in Italy, Germany, UK, France, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Romany, Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Luxemburg and Holland.
In 2006 he started organizing courses for those wanting to be tango dj‘s,
in which many of the present well known tango dj‘s learnt their trade.
In 2008 he was the first tango dj to play music in Asia (Corea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore), also giving his highly appreciated courses.
In 2009 he created his “La Típica Mina” orchestra, with which he toured around Italy.
In 2011 the group returned to Europe as a duo (piano and bandoneón).
His interest is focused on promoting the original tango music. Today he does so in his tour “EL DISCO ES CULTURA 2017” (“Record is Culture 2017”), around Argentina, Europe and Asia, as he has been doing during the last years. To achieve his goal he uses the old vinyl records that belonged to his parents and grandparents, the same he used at the beginning of his career, back in 1999, in Buenos Aires.
This has inspired many tango dj‘s to perform likewise, fhus bringing back to life the interest in the original old records.
His Teachers were, are, and will be Osvaldo Natucci and Mario Orlando.
His inspiration, la Épica de Félix Picherna (Félix Pichema´s Epic).
The challenge of keeping the dancers enjoying themselves inspired by my choice of music is what motivates me the most every time I DJ.
