Tangon Taikaa are the pioneers of Finnish tango in Germany and remain the most popular band of the genre there. The Taikaas hit it off with the audience on a very high musical level. On the instrumental forefront is Valentin Butt, accordionist with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Singer and entertainer Timo Valtonen sings and recites the lyrics, translating them partly into German or English, Swedish or French. Bassist Andrew Krell from Hamburg completes the ensemble.
The Marburger Neue Zeitung writes on Timo Valtonen: “He is a master in the art of conveying messages
through music, thus enabling special moments of encounter. He is a wizard with the audience, and obviously fully immersed in his music.”
