FROM NORWAY, Olav Sørensen’s
Electrocutango is considered on of the most dynamic, innovative and original expressions of the new electro-tango movement. The sound is identified as tango with an update rather than electronica with exotic seasoning. The music has a distinct identity based on tanguero musicianship and with an original approach to fusions with anything from Puerto Rico, Brazil, RnB, DnB, jazz or contemporary music.
Behind Electrocutango is the norwegian pianist and composer/arranger Sverre Indris Joner. He early began to play and compose music with emphasis on the latin genres. He writes for ballet, theatre, orchestra, film and has arranged numerous tangos and other latin genres for symphony orchestra performing as a soloist.
Unlike traditional tango the improvisation is a central element in Electrocutango´s music. And different from most electronic tangos Electrocutango is basicly tanguero fusioned with all the rest – not the other way around… And when a lot of fun and unexpected fusions are thrown on top that makes it a real ball! And not surprisingly – the tango-dancers takes the challenge!
The album Felino is already considered a classic within the electronic tango genre.
Electrocutango made the award-winning music for in the innovative play Tanghost in collaboration with choreographer Pablo Veron and director Per Olav Sørensen
