PROGRAM NOTE

Midsummer Night Tango is a humorous, light-hearted road movie, accompanying 3 Argentinean tango musicians as they leave Milonga of Buenos Aires behind to discover tango in faraway Finland. Traveling through the scenic landscape, they encounter great Finnish tango singers and composers. They stumble across open-air dance halls in the deep forest, where people dance through the midsummer nights to the sound of the melancholic Finnish tango. This film is a humorous documentary, capturing many comic and charming moments when musicians from two different worlds come together – to discover that they all share the same love for tango music, no matter how different it might sound.
