What to Expect
Mila Tina is classy, stylish and magnetic. She delivers a slick, tight performance that is unique, engaging and massively high-energy.
She is at the cutting edge of the new trend in live drumming with Dj's.
Mila Tina offers 4 different packages:
1. High Energy Freestyle Jamming (with any DJ, any song, and any music style):
Mila Tina brings her unique standing arrangement of drums to offer a high-energy explosion of dance, integrated with elements of martial arts for extra impact. Live drumming is scientifically known to be euphoria-producing, and will deepen your guest's connection with each other as well as their ability to feel the beat of music being played (even after drumming stops) to make them dance and party harder. This package includes three sets of jamming for 15 minutes each.
2. One 10-minute "Exotic Intro" Set:
Depending on the preferences of the theme/style of the event, Mila Tina chooses the hottest, most energizing popular songs and mixes them electronically for maximum power and danceability. Every set is uniquely tailored to your event and accompanied by a choreographed drum-dance performance by Mila Tina. This is an exciting way to break the ice and psych up the guests or your audience for the freestyle drumming that comes next. This package also includes two 15-minute sets of freestyle jamming with any DJ (any music style).
3. Wedding Package:
This includes everything from package 2, but here Mila Tina invites the bride and groom to participate in a jam. No prior experience with music or drumming is required. Mila Tina makes it easy for you to follow along and have a blast and really feel like you're part of the jam. This is extra special for video and pictures and for having a uniquely, fun and memorable bride-groom team collaboration on your special day. This is an easier alternative to those impressive prepared choreographed dances that are becoming popular for couples to do to make their wedding stand out. The crowd will love it.
4. Birthday Package:
This includes everything from package 2, but here Mila Tina invites the birthday guest of honor to participate in a jam. No prior experience with music or drumming is required. Mila Tina makes it easy for you to follow along and have a blast and really feel like you're part of the jam. This is extra special for video and pictures and for having a uniquely, fun and memorable experience on your special day. The crowd will love it.
The Mila Tina Project is the creation of the Chilean born musician, Carolina Fuentes.
Instead of a traditional drum kit (played sitting down), she plays on an original standing arrangement of drums that she designed herself. This allows her to integrate dance and elements of martial arts into her performance.
The Mila Tina Project also incorporates lighting and empowerment-themed video design. Every show has a unique video. The Mila Tina Project is truly a multi-sensory experience, with art you can hear, see and feel.
The Mila Tina Project has collaborated with bands such as Mambo Loco and Radio Europa, with DJ's such as DJ Chile and DJ Six3One, and with hip hop artists such as One4Five and DudMusic.
Carolina is a self-taught musician, song-writer and producer. She is also known for being the creator, composer and lead vocalist of the Latin-rock band, Mr. No Shame, and the former drummer of reggae-funk band The Dan Bailey Tribe.
Mila Tina Project's first EP is scheduled for release in 2017.
