Due to some deep-seated cultural irony known only to its native population, the Argentine tango has a profound grip on Finland where dance clubs and popular singers thrive on this particular style of music. In this collection, Finnish guitarist Ole Halen shares his enthusiasm for the genre by presenting tangos for solo guitar by some of the best Latin American and Spanish tango composer/guitarists, plus transcriptions and arrangements by such luminaries as Francisco Tarrega and Daniel Fortea of Spanish and Italian works originally composed for instruments other than the guitar. Written in standard notation and tablature.
