Mike Shirobokov (Chicago)

We are so happy that Mike Shirobokov has agreed to join us again for this year's festival. Mike doesn't like to promote himself as a tango DJ even though he has been sharing his musical expertise for the last seven years and has DJd in Chicago and New Orleans as well as at the Tango Maya Festival in Mexico. However, his passion for tango and desire to learn and understand the music, as well as his determination to understand the history of the music by attending as many DJing seminars as his schedule allows and reading up on the various orchestras, makes him, in our opinion, one of the regions upcoming DJs and we are so honored that he has agreed to be a part of this year's team.
