Description
Are you ready for a milonga (social dance)? With music by tango immortals as well as their contemporary descendants, these 45 tracks include "Volvió Una Noche" by Carlos Gardel, "Adiós Nonino" by Astor Piazzolla, "Mi Canción de Ausencia" by Roberto Goyeneche, "Ave de Oasi" by Alberto Podestá, "Canción Desesperada" by Susana Rinaldi, "Desde el Alma" by Orquesta Juan d'Arienzo, "La Cortada" by Tango Tripping Project, and "Last Tango in Paris" by Supertangox.

"Developed by men who had left their families behind to start a life in Argentina's bustling capital city, the dance expressed machismo, passion, longing and a fighting edge—and was set to an emerging sound rooted in Spanish and Italian melodies, criollo (Argentine-born) verse and Afro-Uruguayan candombe (a drum-based rhythm). When Argentine musicians took tango to Paris at the beginning of the 20th century, it quickly swept through the ballrooms of Europe. By 1913, everyone wanted to dance the tango, and only then did the porteño aristocrats embrace the trend in the upscale dance halls of Recoleta in Buenos Aires. In 1917, Carlos Gardel recorded the poetic 'Mi Noche Triste' (My Sad Night). Considered the genre's first anthem, it featured Gardel's crooning, charismatic voice and set a new standard…. By the 1970s, the legendary Astor Piazzolla, a master on the bandoneón, was moving tango out of the dance halls and blending the form with jazz and classical music…. Tango electrónica [is] an energetic and sensual music form that's become extremely popular in Buenos Aires and abroad."—Bridgit Gleeson, Lonely Planet
