Here are some Libertango interpretations

Libertango Katica Illenyiˇon violin
http://youtu.be/5RHJXoFvZMI

I prefer a darker more melancholy version of this song. Here is a Libertango by another violinist

Ikuko Kawai Libertango
http://youtu.be/fgFLBu-BgY4

And here is the Bond version on violin
http://youtu.be/pdQmZlFTMzE

Milos Karadaglic - Libertango on guitar
http://youtu.be/G_hFTw64jns

I really like Grace Jones' modern version - I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)
http://youtu.be/nIN3IE3DHqc

Al Di Meola Libertango (Live 2004) My all time favourite guitarist
http://youtu.be/G2JdBwaLYH0

I love this cello dark version - Yo-Yo Ma - Piazzola: Libertango
http://youtu.be/WpEpS1FX5ic

And finally here is yo yo ma with Astor Piazzolla himself - libertango

This was on the radio in the very early hours of the year

Argentina: Richard Allison explores the roots and future of the tango: 'a vertical expression of a horizontal desire'.

London teachers dance in the snow. Calm and beautiful - another side to Argentine Tango

Thanks. Great idea but a pity they did not use more traditional tango accordion music.

Having taken up Argentine Tango since this thread was started I am amazed how little Argentine Tango has to SCD Argentine Tango never mind SCD Ballroom Tango.

Argentine Tango has no lifts or jerkiness. Just smooth sensuality.

Just in case the producers are looking for ideas for Argentine Tango music perhaps we can populate this thread from last year.

Just discovered Hugh Laurie & Gaby Moreno Kiss Of Fire (El Choclo) . Really superb. Gaby sings in Spanish and Hugh in English. It is a jazzy version. Impressed and I'm off to listen to the album - "Didn't It Rain". Never heard of Gaby and didn't know Hugh could sing so a great discovery for me.

A mention of Kara Tointon & Artem Chigvintsev's Argentine Tango made me check out some youtubes of the band Otros Aires. Here are some I like.
