Nuevo Quinteto Otra Vez
“NQOV makes tango spark flames of love.
It moves excitedly, theatrically, with regret,
and then picks up its fate.”
Finland’s leading tango nuevo quintet.
Considered to be one of the leading tango quintets in the world, Nuevo Quinteto Otra Vez was founded in 2016 by Matti Laukkanen (piano), Antti Heerman (violin), Henrik Sandås (bandoneon), Jere Haakana (electric guitar) and Petri Mäkiharju (double bass).
NQOV dedication to creating new music by composing, arranging and exploring the potential of tango, creates the basis for the internationalization of this music and its ambitious implementation. The group continues the legacy of the Argentinean tango, but also creates a new one with tango nuevo.
The sovereignty of the traditional Argentinean tango and the tango nuevo, played virtuously and with profound control by NQOV, creates the prerequisites for the national and international success of this group. They can be seen performing in some of the biggest tango happenings such as Maailmantango in Finland, Tango BA Festival Mundial in Argentina and in other countries.
