Maziar
Dj Maziar

Maziar stepped into the world of tango in 2011 while he was a fresh graduate student at LSU.

Music has always been a strong passion for him, and it was certainly one of the anchoring points for him to stay and learn the dance.

His strong passion for the community, music and the dance was in such a way that since the beginning, the longest he has not danced is a week (except during lockdown of Covid-19). Moreover, the search and exploration of tango music goes on every day and draws him even more into this magical land of life, love and fairytales
