New Tango Orquesta began in 1996 and set about experimenting with newly composed music resulting in the debut album "The New TangoOrquesta" released in 1998. The album was followed by tours and gigs around Sweden. Because of the regeneration and development withinthe genre of tango music, they were invited in 1999 to partake in various festivals in Uruguay and Argentina, both homelands of tango. InBuenos Aires they performed at the Centro Astor Piazzolla, where they were met by standing ovations and open arms. Their newly composedmaterial was above all received with joy, and enthusiasm for the fact that the genre was still alive and well. In the autumn of 1999 theyrecorded the soundtrack to the film "I skuggan av en tango. Their second CD "Part II" was released in 2000 and critically acclaimed allaround the world. With this followed a great many gigs around Sweden and the band were invited by the media mogul Artemy Troitsky, to do atour in Russia. This meant several engagements in Moscow as well as an appearance on the TV-show "Anthropology", which was making aprogram especially for NTO. After that the band travelled on to Rostov and Krasnodar in southern Russia, where they did a number ofconcerts. In 2001 they did their first tour in Germany including concerts in Berlin and Potsdam and a short live performance for the radiostation "Multikulti". In 2002 they recorded newly composed music for the Gothenburg theatre company "Atelierteatern" as well asperforming in a dance act in the Swedish town of Enköping. In spring the same year Swedish Radio aired a concert recorded live in 2001.

New Tango Orquesta, who have become well known in underground circles, for their unique music and their focused performances, have beencritically acclaimed all over the world as the "hope" of new tango. Five young musicians playing bandoneon, violin, piano, double bass andelectric guitar constitute a unique sound using freshly made compositions. The music has got its origin in "Nuevo tango", the genre AstorPiazzolla created in the 20th century by mixing tango, Baroque music and jazz. From these roots the NTO makes innovative excursions aswell as exploring and animating the genre. They refurbish the new tango, go deep in improvisations and tickle the senses with equilibristicBaroque melodies. They beat taut tango, dynamic diversity and independent-progressions into the music and make it into a game, a cry andheartbeating love. The music speaks in exaggerated metaphors and does not back off from what's absolutely real. « hide
