Alex was raised around music, the sea, and humble people in his native Callao, Peru. Since his exposure to some of the greatest Mambo/Salsa tunes of all times, dancing has been his passion. Alex soon after wanted other dancers to feel and enjoy the music the same way he did, which marked the beginning of his career as “DJ El Maestro”. Alex was inspired by great DJs such as his brother “DJ Gonzo” from Houston, TX and New York’s own DJ Antonio La Conga. He has created a unique and different style when spinning Mambo, a style filled with Sabor and outstanding taste in tunes' selection. DJ El Maestro has delivered an amazing Mambo experience for beginners and "Hard-core Salseros"! He now host his own event: "Salsamania Saturdays Social", every 2nd & 4th Saturday of the month in New York City.
