He is, currently, the most versatile DJ and, thanks to a wide knowledge, the only one in Brazil that makes all this mixtures.

His international sound is modern and vintage at the same time. No barriers. Many periods and musical styles are blended. Tahira can build a diversified repertoire smoothly, the transitions are not felt by the audience, and at the end of his set people have listened and danced to everything. It’s a Djing style on the rise in Europe, but masterly done by few DJs.

His heavy curriculum has four gigs at Brahma International (two consecutive years in Ukraine - Brahma Open Air and in Canada - Brahma Sessions). The closing of Rome Film Feast. Vibe Bar in Bricklane (one of the most important nightclubs in London). Bar Guanabara (the most important Brazilian music club in London). Parties of Vinyl Vibes label and Brazilectro compilation's selector Callamarime Moon, and the busy underground club Nublu, in New York. He is one of the most active Brazilian DJs abroad.

In Brazil, he has played in many events such as Ame's Street Parade, New Year's Day Party at Copacabana Beach in 2002 (30 thousand people), Vivo Open Air, Moto Mundo Mix, Cafe De La Musique (launch party), among others. Among clubs and parties are Clash, In The House, Lov.e, Colors, D-Edge, Soundsystem de Rua, Sarajevo, Zoeira Hip Hop, Bar 8, Fun House, Nike's Party (Rio de Janeiro), Fela Kuti Celebration Party, James Brown's one-year death Party etc.

He's resident DJ of the sophisticated Skye restaurant, at the penthouse of Unique Hotel and has taken care of sound ambiance for places (in Brazil and abroad) such as De.Lite (Cologne, Germany), Scheinbar (Cologne, Germany), Westpol-Gewolbe (Cologne, Germany), Mabel-Olfe (Berlin, Germany), Smith of Smithfields (London, England), Café De La Musique, Sofitel Hotel, Hilton Hotel, Emiliano Hotel , São Paulo’s Pinacotheca, Casa de Portugal.
