Tangoko is a Scandinavian based music collective consisting of musicians from Finland and Sweden. The band, which refers to itself as a "collective of composers, singers and artists", was formerly called "TheTangoko", but shortened the name to "Tangoko". Tangoko is finnish and means "is this tango?" Tangoko was formed by the sculptor, sound artist and composer Dan Tommi (www.dantommi.net) who is from Finland but now living in Gothenburg Sweden.Tangoko is part of an evolving tango genre which is known as "Electrotango" or "Tango Fusion", which brought tango back into the mainstream. Tangoko likes to call them selves as The new Finnish Tango fusion. This is because Tangoko relays on the Finnish tango which is an established variation of the Argentine tango and one of the most enduring and popular music forms in Finland. Tangoko mixes the melancholy mood found in the Finnish tango with house music, chill out and techno, and the lyrics are in Finnish only.
