On March 9 at the Salmagundi Club in New York, the Finland Center Foundation will hold a Finnish Tango event. The Tango King of Finland, Amadeus Lundberg, along with two bands will be there. The tango is a favorite dance in Finland. There are 2,000 places where one can dance the tango. Some of us remember when the 60 Minutes program featured the Finnish Tango: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhxZoV3t61c

I remember one time while crossing by ferry from Sundsvall, Sweden to Vasa, Finland... the dance floor in the lounge was crowded with somber-faced Finns dancing the tango...I hadn't known until then how much they loved the tango.
