"In the music of Tjango! the instruments come so close that they almost feel like living beings. Like personalities having a conversation. Or like the warm-heartedness of old friends in an exchange of ideas that has been going on for a century or more. You can hear the long tradition and history of generations of human life.

So although the compositions are new, they sound as if they have a lifetime of experience behind them. As if they had been through the noble salons as well as the jazz clubs of the Latin Quarter. In addition to their classical training, they also know the streets and know that the sunset is just as beautiful whether you watch it from the top of a garbage tip or from a palace balcony.

The music of Tjango! was born in Helsinki, but you could also say that it comes from Paris and Buenos Aires as much as from Ostrobothnia. Its roots lie in Argentine tango and jazz manouche, but also in the origins of American music and the Nordic folk tradition, from which the band draws its original, warm-hearted sound. They are equally at home in concert halls, folk music festivals and jazz clubs.
