V.A. - FINNISCHER TANGO VOL.1 - TULE TANSSIMAAN / KOMM TANZEN (CD)


"In Finland people don't want to believe that the tango was created in Argentina. Even film director Aki Kaurismaki says it's a Finnish invention, and true or false, it has become the national music of Finland. The Nordic version is played differently from its Latin relative; the syncopation has gone, it is played in a minor key and the accordion has replaced the bandoneon. The eroticism of the dancing couples has melancholic. The CD contains a comprehensive collection of unique Finnish tango recordings from 1915 to the present day. It includes rare historical 78s as well as songs influenced by musical fashions such as rock 'n' roll and pop. It proves that the tango can change without losing any of its soul." (label info)
