Who invented the tango? The Argentinians? Well...Uusikuu are one of the most interesting and original interpreters of the rare and rather special genre, the Finnish tango. Uusikuu revisits the haunting and melancholy Finnish rhythms and melodies from the 1930s to 1960s, but their repertoire does not include only tangos, but also fun and fast humppas, dreamy waltzes, and sleek and sophisticated foxtrot and swing numbers that will bring a smile to your face.
