My favourite Argentine Tango songs & video clips

1. Music (CDs)

I enjoy argentine tango music. In following i've listed several of my favourite Tango Argentino tracks and CDs that I enjoy moving to. Many of those are quite modern-day Tangos which beginners might find challenging to dancing to many aren't even considered Argentine Tango songs whatsoever (Astor Piazolla had that problem too..). I have listed the greater conventional and original tracks independently. For a selection of neo-tango songs take a look at

If you should be new to the Argentine Tango scene - please remember that there are numerous variations of those traditional Tango-themes like "La Cumparsita", "El Choclo", "Libertango" or "Corazon de Oro" - some noise "old" (with scratchy noises) other individuals are modern-day as well as the "rate" can differ considerably between different versions.

A number of my favourite Tango CDs are:

  • Symphonic Tango El quinteto buenos aires & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
  • Tango Pasion A.Piazolla, Horacio Salgan, R. Goyeneche & N. Marconi
  • Most readily useful of Tango Argentino (Live at the festival in Granada 1994-1997) A.Piazolla, O. Requena, H. Stamponi, N. Marconi, C. Gardel etc..

I have listed the singer's title initially - however, the singer could be both the initial composer, singer or title of band. These brands are designed to be properly used as keywords for the songs search just - see search containers here.
