NEW TIDE ORQUESTA (from the Album 'Vesper')
Since 1996, Swedish New Tide Orquesta (formerly New Tango Orquesta) have, on five albums and a countless number of international tours, explored and developed the concept of nuevo tango. With their unique mix of baroque music, tango, free improvisation, minimalism, and romantique, they have gained territory all over the world with their special sound.

They have toured all over the world, performed at rock venues in Moscow, tango venues in Buenos Aires, jazz clubs in Istanbul, and concert halls in Beijing.
"This is brilliant. Anything can happen around the next corner, everything is possible."
Per Störby is the musical motor in New Tide Orquesta as the composer and artistic leader. He started with chamber music and developed a unique mix of fugues, counterpoint, improvisation, dynamic, minimalism and baroque music. The latest music investigates, even more far-reaching, all possibilities in the ensemble's acoustic sound palette, with more accent on art and chamber music than before.
