I met the Brazilian Zouk dance in 2002 in Netherland. This dance is very sensual, but it is the music which I fell in love with.
In 2005 I started as one of the first few DJ’s in Netherland, just for fun of course! And since 2010 my passion starts to expand to abroad and overseas, like Spain, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Croatia, The USA and Canada.
As a DJ I witness the development of zouk music: from zouk, ghettozouk and kizomba to remixes, alternatives and pop songs.
I hope to share my passion with others. I love to have different sets of playing, surprises and a good mixture of all styles!

DJ Shravan (Toronto, Canada)

DJ Shravan

Toronto, Canada
Shravan first started dancing zouk in 2014 after a 2 year obsession with salsa. Salsa was fun, but the magical moment happened when he saw Pasty & Josta during the Montreal Salsa Congress in Canada. In the following years then he’s travelled all over Canada, America, Mexico, Brazil and Europe to learn more about this beautiful dance. His style of Zouk focuses on connection along with flowing movements and finding joy in movement.
As a DJ he loves a variety of genres that provide a landscape of flow and musicality. He likes to provide a feeling of waves in energy with different musical vibes to the dancers. Creating a set that allows people to loose themselves in the flow of the dance and forget the world is one of his main focuses. Shravan started DJing in 2016 and is a resident Zouk DJ at two weekly socials & parties at Toronto Canada; along with many other Zouk parties in Toronto. He has been a DJ in several international festivals and local parties around the world.

My whole life is connected with music, not only by playing instrument since my childhood but I always loved listening all sort of music and collecting it. And somehow it happends that I was given the opportunity to use my joy and taste of music to make people on the dancefloor happy. I am trying to learn something new on every event, adapt the music and mood I am playing to the dancers of different communities and countries.
I am playing mostly on events in Brno, my hometown and I am also heading to play to Poland, Romania, Croatia and Prague and others. If I should speak about my prefered style and mood of music, it would be beatless songs, chill and soft. So my favourite time of playing is in the morning or whenever the mood is more relaxed and smooth and cosy. I try to feel the people on the dance floor and provide them fluent energy and satisfy their current dancing mood. I also try to challenge their musicality by expressing music that is not so usual and traditional zouk music.
