The Preacher

    DJ Romy aka The Preacher (31) has discovered Salsa at the end of 2006 when he decided to attend the classes of Salsa School in Bucharest. Seven-eight months later, he has been asked to teach within the Dance School. His experience extends from Salsa, Mambo, Street Cha-cha, Afro-Cuban and Cuban Rumba. Romy is one of the first promoters of the On2 style (Eddie Torres Style) in Romania and one of the best dancers and instructors of this style. In 2014, he started Revolucion del Cuerpo together with his colleagues of the Melodia Project to promote salsa among others.
    His DJing career started in 2007 with the SalsaGalaxy Dance Company's parties in Bucharest. He became the official DJ of those parties. Later on, he has been invited to DJ at national and international events in Bulgaria, Greece, Germany, Italy, Hungary, USA and Croatia. In May 2011, he became the resident DJ of Salsa For You Club (Bucharest). He is also the resident DJ of the National Salsa Congress (Brasov) and the Salsa Addicted Festival (Timisoara), the biggest events that take place in Romania every year. Taking it even further, Romy has always been in love with music and especially with house music. He is not only a Salsa DJ but a real entertainer through all music genres.
    DJ Romy aka The Preacher is probably the 'most international' DJ in the Romanian Salsa landscape. The only thing that makes him stand out the line is his ability to read the crowd and play the right track at the right moment. The Preacher is all about 'good music', but this is the experience you'll have to witness by yourself.
His DJing abilities are also influenced by his musical training and expertise as an instructor, which help him understand the different aspects of musicality and interpretation in Salsa. His style combines all the afro-latin-caribbean genres and sub-genres into a mix to keep the salseros on the dance floor all night long. His favorite saying is "good music is for everybody". His favorite artists are Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Eddie Palmieri, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Frankie Vazquez, Tito Rodriguez, Joe Cuba, Hector Lavoe, El Gran Combo, The New Swing Sextet, La Excelencia and many others.
Que viva la salsa!
