Inspired by Astor Piazzolla and Gerry Mulligan’s collaboration in the 1970s, the instrumentalist Joakim Berghäll and Finland’s leading tango nuevo quintet Nuevo Quinteto Otra Vez take their listeners through a cross-genre journey of exploration into the wonderful world of music where TANGO MEETS JAZZ.
Based in Helsinki, Joakim Berghäll is a musician and composer allergic to all sorts of boundaries. Berghäll’s main instruments include the saxophone, tenor, baritone, alto, and soprano, but he also masters the cello, percussion, bass, and guitar with ease. As a composer, Berghäll has written for small jazz ensembles, chamber ensembles, and orchestras. Most of his works can be heard performed by Finnish ensembles. Berghäll current bands include: Tsuumi Sound System, Auteur Jazz, Astro Can Caravan, Saarikorpi Brom, Fredator, and The Kling. He has also performed with UMO, Väsen, Frigg, and Die Deutsche Kammerfilharmonie Orchestra.
Considered to be one of the leading tango nuevo quintets in the world, Nuevo Quinteto Otra Vez is dedicated to the creative work of music by composing, arranging, improvising, and exploring new possibilities in tango. The group continues the legacy of the Argentinean tango, but also explores a new one with virtuosic and profound control, creating the prerequisites for the national and international success of this group.
TangoLab is Nuevo Quinteto Otra Vez’s and BMusic’s own music laboratory, which creates unique musical experiences for the audience. TangoLab offers its listeners much more than what the word “tango” is traditionally understood to mean. The word tango, deriving from the Latin language, means ‘touch’, and touching the audience with music is precisely the goal of TangoLab. Welcome to experience all that tango can be and most of all what you never imagined it could be!
The concert is organized by BMusic Artists & Events Management Agency and World of Tango Festival with SemiLive
