Caroline Peattie… will be sending her updated DJ bio soon.
Marcelo Rosensaft was born in Uruguay and has been living in Israel since 1977, where he has been DJing since 2011. He is not only a DJ, but also a devoted milonguero.
Marcelo first visited New York City in 2011, and returns several times a year. In 2014, he began DJing in NYC, followed by invitations to other U.S./Canadian venues, including Albuquerque, Boston, Denver, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Washington DC, and more. In 2018, Marcelo started DJing for larger events. He is scheduled for several North American events in 2020.
His music is traditional and well-balanced. While he may start with a pre-arranged playlist, he makes sure that the music matches the situation on the dance floor and the ambiance of the milonga. Being the DJ does not prevent Marcelo from dancing a lot during the milonga.
