Tango Reo:

Tango Reo is formed by four musicians, two Argentinians (Singer and bandoneonist) and two Finns (cellist and bassist). These musicians wanted to return to the roots of tango and play the raw tango, tango reo. To Tango Reo the music and the dance are a way of living and understanding the world. They want to share their culture which lies so deeply in their heritage. Their music is, strong, energetic and it will for sure reach your soul.
