DJ team of Tallinn Tango Weekend 2024

DJ Gianpio Cappucci


10 years ago in Buenos Aires Gianpio Cappucci starts his experience as a Tdj playing in several “milongas Porteñas”. Since 2016 he lives in Krakow, Poland, playing constantly all over the country and rest of Europe. His favorite orchestra ever??.. Anibal Troilo!! “I feel responsible to build a bridge between me and the crowd on the dance floor and establishing a communication which is extremely important in order to feel all kind of vibes we all are able to create”. Categorically traditional, he loves tandas from the Gonden Age of Tango (1939-1946) In fact, the 80% of his selection is composed by tandas belonging to that period. Tandas from ‘30 and ‘50 complete the selection.

Alla Drugova lilledega



Alla Drugova was a co-founder and teacher of Argentine tango and folklore at Taras & Alla's Tango School in Kyiv. Passionate fan of Osvaldo Pugliese and tireless researcher of various styles of tango dancing. Alla dived deep into tango over fifteen years ago and this music continues to fascinate her during the lessons, milongas or in the process of creating the next tanda. She prefers to play exactly what catches and touches her as a social dancer because at the milonga we just want to dance. When choosing a tanda she usually thinks which orchestra has that magic that lifts even very tired milongueros from comfy chairs now and makes them run to the dance floor. Often she finds these features in Golden Age orchestras and in some later compositions. She believes that the musical mood should change throughout the milonga and she strives to ensure that tandas are never boring or too similar. Her ideal milonga is the one after which you may not remember exactly what kind of music was played, but you feel that you had a great time and maybe fell in love a little.



Somer started DJing in the year 2003 in Chicago at his own milongas. He has a great sense of reading the crowd. He knows exactly how and when to change the mood of the Milonga to keep the energy moving on the dance floor up until the very end. His music is strongly based on traditional music with a touch of alternative flavor. As much as he focuses on putting good music for dancing he pays close attention to his cortinas as well. His favorite orchestras are with singers. He has DJed in many international festivals and marathons all over the world.

DJ Marina Rusakova


Originally from Estonia, Marina has been regularly DJ-ing in Tallinn since 2016 and has played at various milongas and events around Europe: in Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Russia, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal. Being in love with traditional tango music she creates the atmosphere of trust and inspiration for dancers, giving to them diversity and energy.

DJ Anthony Cronin


Anthony has been a tango DJ since 2007. He was a DJ long before he discovered tango, DJ-ing in nightclubs and radio in his student days in his native city of Cork. Now he DJs milongas, marathons, encuentros and tango festivals at home and abroad, with a long list of countries already under his belt. Anthony is well known on the Marathon/Encuentro circuit as a dancer and DJ. Anthony says: “It is all about the dancers and keeping them dancing and smiling. I play primarily from the 1930s & 40s with gentle dives into the wonderful Guarda Vieja of the late 20s and odd trips into the 50s. “As a dancer first, I know that once I trust the DJ to be consistent, my night is better, and this is what I seek to give all dancers, comfort that the music will be danceable and flow tanda to tanda.”. I don’t work with playlists but let the night be guided by my connection with the dancers and what I feel they need at a particular moment. My love goes beyond playing music. I spend many hours researching tango history and hunting sources of the best quality transfers possible for my collection to fill the room with beautiful music. Each time I try to gently tell a story and keep the dynamics changing across the set so everyone gets carried along. I want to live life to the full and laugh, and that is what I try to give the dancers; their smiles make it all a pleasure. Read Anthony’s DJ page where he discusses the stories behind many well know tangos.




Olga Sannikova has a background in classical music, and is a professional musician. She fell in love with tango music back in 1991 when listening to Piazzolla's music and slowly found her way into the tango scene, first as a dancer and more recently as a DJ. With a deep understanding of music and the history of music, she delights in inviting tango dancers to a night of dancing to traditional music with tandas that have energy and flow guaranteed to keep you dancing until La Cumparsita.

DJ Margus Kivi


Once he became an organiser of a Kalamaja milonga at an Argentinian restaurant in Tallinn, he also started trying his skills as a DJ with the success, simultaneously improving his own dancing style, and becoming a husband and a father. We can only feel envious of Margus’ vitality and energy!
