Meet Alesya, a Spotify playlist curator residing in Eindhoven, The Netherlands
“It is a selection of tunes I feel inspired to dance to. I made this playlist first for myself to find songs I am interested to move with. I like challenging rhythms, that's why there are a lot of broken beat and jazz influenced sounds. I like when music is deep and light at the same time; I like when the music is full of soul. All this qualities shape my style in dancing too. Then I thought it could be a good idea to share it with dancers and other people... So I made this playlist recieved a lot of thankful responses.”
Tell me a little about yourself - Do you make music? Why do you love music?
I am professional dancer: House Dance, Jazz Fusion Dance, Contemporary / Improvisation techniques. Dance is always intertwined with music. As soon as you get deeper into dance you go deeper into the music. And of course it is one of the inspiration for me to keep moving.
