Moreover, as a

classes, he had acquired a great knowledge also as tango dancer, having participated in amateur tango-dance groups,

ability as DJ.
He was the DJ at
practices, dancing meetings, and all tango events organized by Gustavo Naveira
in Cochabamba 444 since 1990 and in La Papelera since 2003 until now.
He was invited by European tango organizers to DJ at some of
their best milongas in Europe. which he performed very successfully for the joy of
many good Italian dancers.
