Alternative Tanda 26 - Sexteto Milonguero

This alternative tanda is really more of a modern tanda by Sexteto Milonguero.

The Sexteto Milonguero formed in 2006 with the simple desire to play the dance repertoire, usually heard in the milongas, including different styles of different bands, emphasizing the 40′s, and beyond the excellent versions heard for years, Sexteto Milonguero tries to give a personal sound to these great old songs.

The only intention? … follow the path of those great bands, and do not let the tango, withdraw from the neighborhood, the dancers, the popular, the milongas …"

Javier Di Ciriaco - Sexteto Milonguero

Alternative Tanda 19: Downtempo Electronic

This weeks alternative tanda is an downtempo electronic tanda. The songs range from bluesy to trip-hop to electronic rock, but they all have a similar quality that pulls them together. Notice that Bloodstream has been edited to end at 3.53, it is much longer and the rest of the song rambles on and would be difficult to dance to. Also, be warned that "Talk Show Host" does have adult language.

Alternative Tanda 16: Gardel Remixed

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. What I like about these songs is that  they did not over do it and have preserved the feeling and sound of the old songs, but with a beat for dancing.
