New Tide Orquesta

(formerly known as New Tango Orquesta)

"Experimental album of the year: Vesper" – Manifest Prize 2011
"Group Of The Year" – Swedish Folk and World Music Gala 2010

New Tide Orquesta (former New Tango Orquesta) is one of the most appreciated live acts in Sweden. During 16 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 nine 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, and they have also made music to several theatre plays, dance performances and art installations.
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."
