DJ Sensual-Mente is a wild personality, bordering on having ADHD. He’s a music lover who exults everyone within earshot of his beats – beats which flow straight from his soul.
Place of birth: Poland (Makowie Mazowieckie). In 2007 after a serious sports injury he took up dancing in Warsaw. At first he was fascinated with salsa and bachata and dove into them with a real sense of latino fantasy. Then it was his friends who convinced him to try his hand on African rhythms. So he did. He fell in love. And that love lasts to this day. From his first Kizomba lessons in 2009 – under the tutelage of instructors from the top rate school “Montuno Aye” – dance and music have absorbed him completely. It wasn’t long before he got to know kizomba’s older sister, semba. Now Angola’s youngest child, kuduro, is knocking on his door.
Piotr takes to his passion for music and dance with all his heart. It’s this heart that has led women to line-up for a chance to dance with him and partygoers to ever more appreciate him as a DJ who can bring delicate sensual notes together with strong, passionate percussion. He draws his inspiration directly from the raw and organic beats of Africa and creates a magical vibe. Festivals like Bachaturo, Warsaw Salsa Festival, Warsaw Kizomba Festival, Bachata Lovers and others were grounds for him to hone his skills. It’s his dance skills among others that make him a natural DJ. Every dance night put together by DJ Sensual-Mente is a treat for the ear and soul. Having committed to being a professional disc jockey Piotr now sharpens his talents with the best, the professional FTB DJ-School in Poland.
As Piotr expands his own dance and music horizons while also working hard to build-up the dance scene in Poland he will never cease to be grateful to Ola Leszczewicz, who brought the beautiful gift of kizomba to Poland in the first place. He continues to delve deeper into the African culture and tradition of music to bring out new and fantastic sounds. Through his passion for dance but especially through his music he longs to bring joy to people and make the world that little bit more beautiful and in so doing draw in ever more people.
Piotr was always a regular at the Monday parties in the largest salsa school in Warsaw – Salsa Libre. There he played in the Sensual Room to all sensual dance lovers. There’s really no way to name all the places he’s DJ’ed, but to list just a few: The Fame, Klub Medyk, Kameralna, Hoover Square, Fabryka Trzciny, The Barge on the Vistula, and not least the coolest beach spot in Warsaw – La Playa. He’s also left his print on one of the largest salsa festivals in the country – the 11 year old Biba beach party in Tri-City. In Gdansk Piotr’s also played in Klub Kibica at the PGE Arena and in Sopot at Klub Pick&Roll. Of course, he couldn’t miss playing for Dancers4Kids, a festival for a good cause.
A natural ease in making friends with new people, an inspiring love of life and the music flowing from his fingertips come together to make Piotr a one-of-a-kind donor of positive energy and contagious smiles. DJ Sensual-Mente is a wizard at the consoles, pumping out magical sounds in every direction.
