Project Overview

Chen Wei Li

Singapore

Wei Li is one of the most regular faces behind the Tango DJ decks at Singapore’s Milongas.

His interest in Tango and its music started when, as a school boy more than 15 years ago, he first heard Astor Piazzolla’s music in Wong Kar Wai’s “Happy Together”. That seminal work paved the way for Wei Li to start learning Tango, leading him to learn more about the music and eventually DJ-ing. He has since DJ’ed at several Tango events like Busan Tango Marathon, Seoul Tango Marathon, Bali Tango Marathon and recently Chengdu International Tango Festival.

Together with his partners at Tangopura, Wei Li organises two highly popular weekly Milongas, Tango classes as well as the annual Singapore Tango Marathon.
