Musical taste - DJ Sacha's live mixes gather energetic tracks that truly transmit salsa's positive energy to the audience, and form a balanced mix of ageless favourites and bleeding edge hits. He pays particular attention to anticipating the crowd's reactions, in order to keep the energy up and the danceefloor full. Guaranteed to keep you dancing until the end of the night!
"DJ Sacha's selection is fresh, yet up to date. I love it." - Dean, London.
"I had never heard some of the tracks before, but they were so good I couldn't stop dancing! I was pleasantly surprised." - Lorraine, Manchester.
Dance teaching and entertainment - Sacha's ability to lead fun dance line ups and taster classes guarantees that everyone gets a chance to dance and to love a salsa party. For the past 5 years, Sacha has developed a long dance teaching and entertainment experience in the framework of local group classes, private one-to-one classes, primary school activities, city council sports events, corporate events and hen/stag nights. Thus, he has a track record of helping people of all abilities to become confident on the dancefloor and to enjoy salsa dancing at their own level.
"Thanks to your dance lineups during our wedding party, everyone was able to enjoy the live salsa band and had so much fun. Thank you!" - Miranda and Tim, Cambridge.
Salsa promotions - For hassle-free event organisation, nothing beats hiring an experienced salsa promoter. Sacha has organized and promoted many Cuban salsa events and parties which have revived, developed and grown the Cuban salsa scene in the region of Cambridge, and he is now helping with a number of other Cuban salsa projects in East Anglia and the UK (information available on www.CambridgeCubanSalsa.co.uk). For your own event, just pick a venue, and Sacha can provide lighting and a sound system, advise on room arrangements and decoration, advise on the schedule which will keep your guests happy and entertained at the appropriate moments, and more. Just rely on your DJ for organisation details, and let your mind be free to take care of your guests and enjoy the party.
" If DJs were all playing the same thing all the time, it would be boring. A good DJ is one who plays some familiar tracks to make people feel at home, but also brings people to uncharted territory and exotic destinations, with taste, good judgement and respect for the guests, catering for experienced dancers and beginners alike."
"A DJ also has to express personality in his choice of tracks. I'd say my choice is more towards positive, happy tracks, with something interesting in the tumbao, and lots of musicality. But if the crowd wants commercial tracks, that's no worries, in the end it's about having a good time."
"I like challenges. My best souvenir is a wedding party where a Venezuelian groom married a German bride in the UK. I had to please everyone, from the Latino granny to the Berliner emo teen niece, and the British guests too. Did a bit of research, updated my knowledge of the German top 100 (used to live in Germany a few years ago), and in the end the mix included something for everyone, evolving seamlessly between the styles. Did you know that Heart of Glass from Kim Wilde starts with a salsa beat, or that some merengue tracks mix great with Gangnam Style? That's what I'm talking about. In the end everyone had a great time and was stunned to discover that German pop and 80es hits could be blended with salsa in a completely seamless way. Everyone had a good time and that's what matters most: a great party that people will remember equals mission accomplished." - DJ Sacha, Cambridge
