This weeks alternative tanda is a collection of electronic tangos by Metrotango. These are from an album called Gardel Remixed. They have taken old Gardel songs and added electronic beats over them, so they have the feeling and sound of the old songs, but with a beat for dancing.

This weeks alternative tanda is a collection of French Valses. The first two come from the Amelie soundtrack and are sort of alternative tango classics. The final one is by Edith Piaf and maybe slightly more difficult to dance to, but I love it and have had wonderful dances to it.

This weeks alternative tanda focuses on 3 electronic milongas. "Leonel, El Feo" is a really funky milonga by Bajofondo Tango Club with Daniel Melingo singing. "El Lloron" is a very famous milonga and this electronic cover is a lot of fun by Electrocutango. The final song is "Pequeño Paria (Roy Dubb ReRadio Mix)" by Daniel Melingo. I love listening to Melingo, check out all of his albums.

This weeks alternative tanda focuses on 3 trip-hop songs. I have edited "Glory Box" and "2 Wicky" to shorten them. Portishead's "Glory Box" is one of my absolutely favorite non-tango songs to dance to. It is very tango in feeling and subject matter. The second one is the french version of "Only You," whcih I think makes it even better than the english version. Hooverphonic's "2 Wicky" is a little less well known, but great for dancing and fits well with the first two.

This weeks alternative tanda is a collection of modern classical pieces excellent for dancing tango. The first is a band called Apocalyptica, who covers lots of Metallica songs. This version of "Nothing Else Matters" has been popular for years as an alternative tango. The second song is from an Italian movie soundtrack called "Cuore Sacro." It is a beautiful song and I love dancing to it. The third song is from the Mr. and Mrs. Smith Soundtrack and is very bold and a great way to end this tanda. One thing that ties all of these songs together is that they all start soft and slow and then build and build to really wonderful crescendos.
