Finland's most celebrated tango duo, Johanna Debreczeni and Jouni Keronen, and their tango primo trio, will give one performance in Sofia on December 1 at 7pm in Hall 6 of NDK. They will be accompanied by performers from Dance Academy-Sofia.
Finnish tango is a variation of the Argentine tango and one of the most enduring and popular music forms in Finland. Love, sorrow, longing for happiness and an escape to nature are frequent themes in Finnish tango songs.
Proof of the "tangomania" in Finland is the annual tango festival in Seinäjoki, one of the country's biggest such events. The festival's highlight has always been a tango singing competition and the winners, who now carry the titles of tango king and tango queen, become stars overnight.
Debreczeni and Keronen, Finland's "tango royalty", are cousins. Debreczeni, who is a violinist, pianist, singer and actress, was elected queen of tango at the Seinäjoki tango festival in 2004 and has already published two albums. Jouni is a classical guitarist and singer who won the title king of tango at the Seinäjoki tango festival in 1998.
These two singing cousins established the tango primo trio, whose third member is Samuli Jokinen, a renowned accordionist. Tango Primo provides their audience with songs from different music genres arranged into fine fusion tango. During their performance, they interpret both their musical creation as well as classics from Finland and abroad.
