The Finnish tango is dark and solemn, with deep, sorrowful tones that evoke emotions of wistfulness, regret and longing for the homeland or a distant land of happiness.
Its popularity can be seen in Finnish summer highlight, the Tangomarkkinat, or tango festival, held annually since 1985 in the central Finnish town of Seinäjoki.The festival attracts more than 100,000 participants annually and is capped by the coronation of the tango King and Queen.
This event is part of the 'Finland100' celebrations.
