Melina Mistral

Starting as a dancer and then as a teacher, Melina began to explore DJ’ing over 8 years ago. Playing at first in the local milongas of Montreal (Montango, Las Piernas, TSC, milonga Cariñito, la milonguita del Barrio) her home base, she slowly introduced herself on the international stage as she travelled to teach. She has since DJ’ed in San Francisco, Atlanta, DC Washington, New York, Ann Arbor, North Carolina, Virginia, the Netherlands and France for festivals, marathons and local milongas. 

Recognized for dancing both roles in Tango, Melina’s understanding and sensitivity to the need of the dancers and the ronda, keeping a good energy on the floor, are the foundations of her music choices.
