Respect the music and Respect the people
"I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Surinam which is a part of South America and used to be a colony of the Netherlands. In Surinam everybody grows up and is familiar with the typical local music (Kaseko, Kawina, Bigi poku) but also with all the music from South America and the Caribbean such as Salsa, Merenque, Cumbia, Soca, Dancehall etc.
When I moved to the Netherlands I fell in love with Salsa and Salsa dancing and learned my first Salsa steps (Salsa Casino style also known in those days as Salsa Antilleana ) from respected Mr. Louis Contigo and a few years later Mr. Cees de Vroomen.
A few years later I was asked to teach Salsa (Casino Style) and thus I became a salsa teacher, which I did with pleasure for about 5 years.
While organizing parties for my students after every dance course I became also fond of being a "deejay" and people started asking me to also perform at their parties.
After my "career"" as a dance teacher I continued with the Dj-ing and the result of the story is what you can see at this site.
In "real" life I work in the medical hospital area as a strategic purchaser and apart from being a DJ my greatest hobby is martial arts. "
