Tango in 5 is a distortion of the Latin American tango, with an occasional five-beat bar and vocal percussion effects. Scat syllables form the basis of the text in the first and last sections. The middle section features new words - a combination of Italian, Spanish and French. The tango is a sensual and evocative dance, and the piece itself provides some moments for dramatisation, especially as the main melody begins with a portamento octave.
Instrumentation: SSAA choir unaccompanied.
Duration: 3 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Marjukka Riihimäkki and KLONK Choir
