DJ El Maestro 


Alex Gonzales AKA “Dj El Maestro", 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 was his passion.

He then wanted other dancers to feel and enjoy the music the same way he did. This marked the beginning of his career as “DJ El Maestro”. He 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.
