Jaakko Laitinen and Marko Roininen are the masterminds behind the Finnish Lapland-Balkan world music sensation Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha.
Their new project “Jaakko Laitinen Tango” is Laitinen’s and Roininen’s tribute to their roots in Finnish tango. The dynamite duo’s voice and accordion is joined by top class Finnish musicians, guitarist Janne Halonen and multi-instrumentalist Markus Pajakkala. The repertoire consists of their own tangos and the
band’s personal favorites of Finnish tango: classic compositions by Toivo Kärki and Unto Mononen sprinkled with international classics from the repertoire of the all-time undisputed Finnish tango king, Olavi Virta.
