Diego “El Pájaro” Riemer , multifaceted artist in dance, music, design and advertising, takes up tango in Buenos Aires, his hometown, where he is formed with the maestro Tito Molinari and learns from the “old” dancers and milongueros. He thereafter perfects his technique with several professional dancers. In 2000 he leaves for Europe and is first installed in Berlin and then in Lyon where he single-handedly develops a successful international career, becoming a reference and inspiration for many dancers, especially for his musicality in tango and his way of dancing milonga.
As a former drummer, he explores the rhythms of the tango, waltz and milonga in a very particular manner. Owner of a unique and original musical expression in his dancing and improviser par excellence, he is internationally recognized and sought for his sense of humor in tango, the exploration of the traspié and rhythm, the caminata and the giros with adornments (enrosques and lapices), in addition to his special and thorough technique and pedagogy for the transmission of tango and its culture.
