This weeks alternative tango is a collection of songs by Astor Piazzolla. What amazes me about Piazzolla is how he can put so many emotions into the same piece of music.

This weeks alternative tanda focuses on pop waltzes (vals). "Hijo de la Luna" is a classic alternative tango song and has a great waltz rhythm for dancing. Sting's "Until" is one of my favorite waltzes to dance to. It is such a beautiful song and has a classic waltz rhythm. "Will you remember" is a sweet and pretty waltz.

I really love dancing tango to bluesy music and no one sounds better singing the blues than Nina Simone. I have used this set for years and everyone always loves it. It is a sure fire crowd please, even for those that do not like alternative tango.

This weeks alternative tanda focuses on electronic tango music. "Felino" is almost a classic of electronic tango and is often used at alternative milongas. I have put it with two songs by Otros Aires, one of the best modern tango bands. The second song mentions the greatest classic tango orchestras Pugliese, Troilo, d'Arienzo. The final song is a great cover of Pugliese's classic song, "La Yumba."

This tanda mixes blues, hip-hop, and trip-hop. I love dancing to these songs and they feel very tango to me.
