Did you know that the word ‘tango’ is Latin and means ‘I touch’? Tango’s roots are in Latin America where the musical genre developed hand in hand with the dance. Tango arrived in Finland with a bang in 1913, and in the following years Finns not only adopted it but made it their own. The second coming of tango took place in the 1960s, and this time Finns’ tango fever reached almost hysterical proportions. Still today Finland has a passionate relationship with tango, and both the musical genre and the dance style have become a part of our culture and identity.

In this concert UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra does the tango – both Argentinian and Finnish – directed by its new Artistic Partner, the Argentinian-born Guillermo Klein.

Argentinean Diego Schissi, Richard Nant and Juan Pablo Navarro and Finnish arrangers Kari Ikonen and Frank Carlberg are responsible for the big band versions of Klein’s pieces as well as Finnish tango arrangements. Also Guillermo Klein himself will give his retouching tint especially into the Finnish tangos.

Composer, pianist and conductor Guillermo Klein (b. 1969) is UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s recently appointed Artistic Partner and artist-in-residence for 2020–2021. A true world citizen, Klein was born in Argentina’s Buenos Aires, trained in the United States and is currently based in New York. He also has a versatile musical background where classical education meets rock and a degree in jazz is complemented by Latino influences. In addition to leading his own group, Los Guachos, Klein’s CV is adorned with collaborative projects with a number of notable orchestras, including hr-Bigband and the Metropole Orchestra.

”Pianist-composer Guillemo Klein merges clockwork intricacy with guileless emotion in Los Guachos… On Cristal, they embrace Klein’s kaleidoscopic take on the tangos he grew up with in Argentina – music charged with deep feeling and deceptive formality.” Nate Chinen, WBGO

”Mr. Klein’s home country courses through everything he writes, but he resists letting his music be pinned to a single influence or nationality.” Giovanni Russonello, The New York Times
