Diego Riemer


Charm, Charisma, Style and Sense of Humor!

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 in the 90's. 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 technique and musicality in tango and his way of dancing milonga.

He has worked and danced with Maria Plazaola, Elina Roldan, Mercedes Espinel, Victoria Vieyra, Eugenia Parrilla, Alejandra Mantin, Sigrid Van Tilbeurgh, Maria Belen Giachello, Cecilia Piccinni and since 2013 with Natalia Cristobal .

Diego "El Pájaro" Riemer lernte Tango in seiner Heimatstadt Buenos Aires. Im Jahr 2000 kam er nach Europa, lebte zuerst in Berlin und dann in Lyon. Als ehemaliger Schlagzeuger erkundet er intensiv die Rhythmen von Tango, Walzer und Milonga. Nicht zuletzt deshalb ist er berühmt für seine Musikalität im Tango und seine Art, Milonga zu tanzen.


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.
