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'.

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.

Really not very traditional, but would make a nice subtle/elegant AT:

I'm up for electro Argentine Tango, and it is quite good for beginners with the defined beat, but the problem is that it can lead to bouncing on the beat and too much hip action. The clarinet solos in this piece are good for arrastres / drags They do give an accordion feel to the music.

See the See the Strictly Salsa thread and post music that you would suggest dancing AT to.

Don't try to be inclusive by adding pop chart music.

My AT is still pretty poor but I'll try and have a go.

Any suggestions?
The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Next. Perhaps not if you know what it is about.

Just back home from an Argentine Tango dance and they ended with a Milonga style number. I'm drained after it.

Imagine tango at this tempo.

Never heard of a cicada and can't find anything on it on youtube.

Ah Cicada sounds not a tango sequence.

I love this piece. Great for my posture. Head goes up and chest sticks out. Lovely for walking, rebotes, ochos, boleos, barreras ... yes and sacadas. Just "led" a sitting down tango to it.

Oh JLo was the follower

Just a simple dance fan, but I rather liked this AT song on DWTS recently (perhaps not a classic AT type song, but I like the beat):

Ana Tijoux - 1977

I am not keen on hip-hop in any language. OK I dislike it. I would not dance to it, especially not an AT.

Besides IMHO that is NOT Argentine Tango. Maybe Ballroom Tango.

AT has steady not jerky heads and often (for me always) heads and chests locked together during the whole dance. No lifts therefore are possible.

Just back from a 19:00 > 23:30 Milonga.

I like the music of French Accordionist Richard Galliano - He's primarily a jazz musician, but here are some tunes by one of his bands called Tangaria Quartet.

Guarda Che Luna:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QeQZfGtGyg



Chat Pître:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uGN19ZRSjQ



This is an interesting arrangement of the tune Autumn Leaves, & has, to me, an Argentine Tango feel:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hjMisX997Y



Tangaria (might be a bit too fast):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8n2bw-W2hGM



Tango Pour Claude:
