DJ Koki

United States

DJ Koki Lizonde is a product of the beautiful and culture enriched city of Lima, Peru. Being exposed to the purest roots of culture he began dancing at the age of 5. As his love for dance expanded into a natural progression into the art of music. Live Latin Music was the fuel for this passion with local bands and concerts were the fueling station.

In search of continuous growth, in 2007 DJ Koki moved to Orlando, Florida which brought him to another humble beginning at the Universal Mambo Dance Academy. At UMDA, he would dance and provide the tunes that would keep the students inspired.

The next art form which grew in DJ Koki’s life, was the art of moving a crowd through music, for which he became a student to the craft of DJ’ing. With a strong back ground and connection to Latin Dance, his passion can be felt at many of the venues of which he currently DJs and also hosts with his event "The Hundred Social" with his business Partner Jorge Pan Sobao. The sound waves provided by DJ Koki can be felt strongly across the whole state of Florida, Nationally and internationally in Socials, Clubs, Cruises, Festivals and congresses.

DJ Sergio

France

One of the humble salsa music ambassador in Paris, he switched from CDs to Vinyl in his quest for the rare sounds and their authenticity.

“A new way to listen to, greater harmonic richness, but especially the opportunity to get my hand on yet never digitized albums and therefore very little known.”

No doubt that you will recognize easily the “Artist’s touch” through his creative musical selection. He is the organizer of the famous party LeSalsa’ Club, which takes place once a month in Paris and also the Co-organizer of “Saturday Mouaze Fever” party.

DJ Cycy

France

Cyrine aka Dj Cycy joined the new wave of parisian Djs 10 years ago. She was educated to the subtitles of latin sounds and mixing by Dj Gabriel during O'Sullivans Salsa nights, where she became co-organiser and resident Dj.

Cycy is now one of the female Djs the most required on the international Salsa scene. Also a confirmed dancer, she has a great musical sensitivity. Dj Cycy juggles with a swinging music full of diversity, always in search for the perfect sound.

She plays salsa in every style: Salsa Clasica, salsa dura, son, salsa romantica, chacha…

DJ Morena

Slovenia

Dj Morena / Katja is dancing since she is able to remember. She grew up in a dancing family, starting with ballroom and experimented ever since with different styles and music, spending countless hours on the parquet and in front of the mirror. More than ten years ago she fell in love with her greatest passion - Salsa.

Almost 7 years ago she started as a Djane at local parties until she was given a chance to play abroad and slowly became more and more internationally recognized salsa Djane.

DJ Anael

France

DJ Anael is a salsa sounds lover since more than 10 years and records collector since 2011.

In 2006, he discovered salsa, started dancing and collecting music by purchasing CDs and then Vinyl records. As a kid he received music and piano lessons, and this background gave him great listening skills, needed to discover gems songs to please the ears of dancers. Travelling to many congresses every year as a dancer, he aims to bring the same musical experience to the local salsa scene.

He started to play music for the crowds in 2012 as guest DJ, and quickly grew as the main Mambo DJ on the french riviera (Nice / Monaco).

  • "This event is very special. What I like about the Prague marathons compared to others is the amazing combination of passionate dancers dancing to music played by passionate, experienced DJ's in a very quaint and comfortable venue, serving up very tasty buffet style meals and loads of snacks in between. I love how the snacks and meals are integrated completely with dancing area. The dancing is seemingly non-stop, starting from noon lunch/brunch until 6 AM in the morning. And perhaps the best is the general atmosphere of being relaxed and unpretentious, attended by friendly passionate dancers. Why I would recomend this event to my friends? Because it is a great way to dance a lot to really good music, to chill out with friends, and to get to know passionate salsa people much more closely than would be possible at larger, more formal salsa events."

The high level of organisation, especially after all the uncertainty of the pandemic times in which we’re currently living, is very laudable! From the ticket purchase and transfer to the check-in and staff, welcome drink, outstanding meal offerings, friendly and professional kitchen staff, top-notch DJ lineup, quality level of balanced leads/follows, this Fall Prague Marathon was, quite simply, excellent!"

Romantic Grotta

Havlíčkovy Sady, 12000 Prague 2, Czechia

The Grotta is the main attraction of the Havlicek Gardens and looks like a fairytale with its peculiar rock formations. The artificial cave looks unusual on the building and features the arcade promenade which is quite unique in Prague. The Grotta dates back to 1871 to 1888 when it was intricately built by Moritz Grobe, a millionaire. After renovation in 2011, the cave was opened for public.
