The key ingredients of the Finnish tango are longing and passion. Tango Orchestra Unto’s music is firmly rooted in both.
The six virtuosos led by pianist-arranger Timo Alakotila salute the classic Finnish tango with their freshly-nuanced, powerful renditions of works by Unto Mononen and Toivo Kärki, the most prominent composers of the genre, as well as a growing repertoire of contemporary tangos. The varied musical backgrounds of Unto’s musicians – from world music and jazz to theatre music and tango nuevo – imprint their music with a wealth of influences, freedom of playing and depth of interpretation. Tango-orkesteri Unto’s music breathes and flows with exceptional freedom.
