Mario Marušić, Austria

Deejay Ridinaro


As a young man, Mario Marušić had an accident during his summer holidays somewhere in Croatia. His life changed upside-down, as it left him quadriplegic. He lost his apprenticeship and had to go on with life on wheels. However, thanks to resiliency and great support of his family, Mario was able to transform himself, becoming the well-known Deejay Ridinaro. Using assistive technology and grooving beats he makes people dance all night long, might it be at one of the largest open Air festivals in Europe (Danube Island Festival in Vienna) or, if you like, at your wedding party. In addition, he is totally into gaming – almost unbeatable!
