Harry Ang will be one of the DJs in the upcoming World Bachata Festival 2019!
Harry Ang is the driving force behind Malaysia’s Bachata scene. Through his efforts in teaching, choreographing, DJ-ing and organizing the only Bachata Sensual social night in the country, Bachata has gained popularity and is growing rapidly.
Born in 1984, Harry has his roots in Latin Ballroom from his university days and was introduced to Salsa and Bachata in late 2009. Harry sprung to prominence after being crowned Malaysia Bachata Champion in 2010 and Asia Bachata Champion in 2011. Having taught for 7 years, Harry now conducts weekly progressive classes in various studios and leads teams to perform on local and international stages.
Drawing from his experience in Latin Ballroom, Harry brings elegance into Bachata through techniques in hip movements. Naturally, when the Bachata Sensual wave swept across Europe, he immediately found a strong calling. Later in 2015, he was inspired by Alma Latina’s style and began creating more dynamic choreographies that fuses passion with power.
Harry emphasizes on mutual respect between dance partners, whereby both leader and follower feels comfortable and has ample space for self-expression. Nothing is more important than enjoying the connection together.
Harry’s talent in DJ was discovered when he first collaborated with DJ Gary. What initially began as “Bachata Hour” in a salsa social night drew him deeper into the music realm. His music selection played a major role in pushing Bachata into the spotlight. And when demand outstrips a mere hour, he started Sensual Wednesdays Social at Nicsmann 1940s by Lewre in mid 2018, establishing the only sensual night in Malaysia. His unique selection of bachata music covers the various styles of bachata, including Sensual, Moderna, Remix, Urbana & Tipica.
DJ Harry has since been invited as a Latin DJ to various dance events including Salsa-Lah (2015 & 2017), Singapore Malaysia Joint Dance Fiesta (2015), World Bachata Festival (2015 & 2018), Afro-Latin Fest Asia (2017), Singapore Bachata Weekend (2018), ALMA SG Ultimate Year End Party (2018), Vietnam International Latin Festival (2019).
DJ Harry is one of the featured DJs for the World Bachata Festival in November this year. Come and dance to his spins!
