TANGO POHJAN TÄHDEN RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM!

Tango Pohjan Tähden released its debut album in 2013, featuring pianist Timo Alakotila, who is one of Finland's most versatile and in-demand composers, arrangers, and multi-instrumentalists in the genres of folk, classical, jazz and pop music, performing and arranging for such groups as Järvelän Pikkupelimannit (JPP) and UNTO Tango Orchestra in addition to touring internationally. Tango Pohjan Tähden and Timo Alakotila have mixed traditional Finnish tangos with Argentine tango nuevo and American jazz to create a new sound, but the soul of Finnish Tango is never far under the surface of these new arrangements. The album features eight traditional tangos and waltzes by Finnish composers such as Unto Mononen and Toivo Kärki, as well as four original compositions by the group, all of which are perfect for dancing and listening alike!

TPT performed on Twin Cities Public Television's ALMANAC! 

TPT was featured on MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO'S Morning Edition!
