Finnish Tango at La karina

Clas and I are born in Finland.
Our country has a tango culture that goes back to the beginning of the last century.
It's an established variation of the Argentine tango and it was brought to Europe in the 1910s by traveling musicians.
The Finns began to take up the form and write their own tangos in the 1930s.

Two couples from Ostrobothnia, the part of Finland where we come from, visited us the other night and I made a video clip when they were dancing to show you how it looks when the Finns dance tango.
I think it's so beautiful and I just like to watch it again and again.
