Robin Thomas (New York)

Robin, originally from Belfast, Ireland, has been dj'ing in New York City and around the world for 13 years. During his first trip to Buenos Aires in 2000 he acquired the habit of going to milongas every night. When he returned to New York he realized that he couldn't afford to continue doing so unless he figured out a way to get into the milongas for free. And so he became a DJ.

At that time in New York there were no DJ's playing tango music the way it was played in Bs.As., in tandas with cortinas and regular tandas of milongas and valses. Robin was determined to offer in New York the same experience that he had grown accustomed to in Argentina. In a relatively short time he was dj'ing at every major tango festival in the US and Canada, and before long was invited to DJ in several european festivals.

In addition to traveling to dj Robin also hosts two of the biggest milongas in North America; Nocturne and RoKo in New York City.
