New Tide Orquesta

Original music of 'nuevo tango'. Daring, provocative and absolutely beautiful.

New Tide Orquesta (former New Tango Orquesta) is one of the most appreciated live acts in Sweden. During 21 years of international touring, the band has found their very own role as the constant outsider. At a rock club in Moscow, jazz festival in Istanbul, tango club in Buenos Aires or a concert hall in Beijing. NTO always take the audience by storm and shows on and on that genre is just a word.

With the composer Per Störby in lead, New Tide Orquesta have, through their eight albums, created a unique sound and style; the miscellaneous mix of modern chamber music, minimalism, baroque, free improvisation, and still, a hint of new tango, with an intense dynamic. The album “Bestiario” was nominated for a Swedish Grammy award, and “Vesper” won the “experimental of the year”-award at the Swedish Manifest gala, and 2010 they were awarded “Group Of The Year” at the Swedish folk- and world music gala. The music has been used in several movies, Future My Love and the Oscar Awarded Searching For Sugarman to name a few, and they have also made music to several theatre plays, dance performances and art installations.

In the newly created performance Mönster Outside, New Tide Orquesta has joined forces with innovative American correographer Sidra Bell and her critically acclaimed dance company Sidra Bell Dance New York, to develop a flexibly voyeuristic discourse about the nature of outliers in contemporary society. The performance will have its premiere in New Orleans in November 2017 and then tour the US, Canada and Sweden during 2018. More info:

New Tide Orquesta has a big and loyal audience, and concerts with NTO always promise a touch of magic: intense, concentrated, intimate and thrilling.

“Their focused performances are a complete acoustic, dynamic, and musically masterpiece one should never miss.”
