About 4 years ago, he ventured to set up his own Milonga in Jakarta, where he is the Host and DJ. Under the flag of PACIENCIA MILONGA INDONESIA, he has help grown the Jakarta Tango community significantly. As a respectable and popular Tango teacher, he teaches and held Workshops at Jakarta, Bandung, Jogjakarta, and Bali.
Bruno Tombari, Argentina
Who I am? A guy from the neighborhood of Villa Ortúzar, in the city of Buenos Aires, a tango dancer, a milonguero, a traveler, a teacher, a football fan, I laugh a lot and cry easily, I am fun and a little annoying.
I was born among pianists and opera singers, a family of musicians who did not have dancers. I knew Tango thanks to my old man. He was the one who gave me this world of hugs, this expressive and creative language, which became my profession, my passion, the best way to know the world and that allows me to meet wonderful people....
Bruno will spin on Thursday from 11 pm onwards.
