The Capital Of Tango

“The preposterous-sounding truth is that, in terms of numbers, if not perhaps artistry, the foremost tango country in the world is actually Finland. The most startling proof of tangomania in Finland is the annual festival in Seinajoki, in which more than 150,000 people take part. The highlight is a tango-singing competition, which is televised, and the winners, the Tango King and Queen, become overnight stars.”
