Tangokungar

Tangokungar

Let yourself be seduced by Finnish classical tango such as Satumaa, Täysikuu or Liljankukka. An authentic Finnish tango concerto with tales as an option.

The word Tango is from Latin and means "to touch". And it is perhaps in our inherent longing for touch, in the moment that tango is born? Our longing is too great and our needs insatiable….!

So let yourself be seduced or terrified by the immortal Finnish tango classics like Satumaa, Täysikuu or Liljankukka!

Tango came to Finland as early as 1913 where it became more established than elsewhere in Europe and it became so popular that it became and still is part of the Finnish people's soul.

I Tangokungar tar vi med dig på en resa i melankolins tecken till dom eviga solnedgångarna, vita björkarnas, och dom spruckna drömmarnas Finland, där sagolandet “Satumaa” får dig att ändå till slut våga och orka möta morgondagens gråmulna verklighet..?

Tangokungar sjungs på originalspråket finska, och “kryddas” mer än gärna med mustiga skrönor på svenska om olika tangokungars öden och äventyr.
