Tanda of the Week 2 (Alfredo de Angelis) 2012-03-19

This weeks tanda is a classic golden age tanda by Alfredo de Angelis. I do not usually play very much de Angelis tangos, but I love this set. The singing is beautiful and the tempo is very upbeat and energetic.

Here is a bonus Vals tanda by Alfredo de Angelis. De Angelis created some of the most beautiful valses ever recorded and I like to follow the above set with a set of his valses.

Tanda of the Week 1 (Carlos di Sarli) 2012-03-12

Tanda of the Week

This weeks tanda is a classic golden age tanda by Carlos di Sarli with Alberto Podestá singing. It demonstrates my belief that tandas should be homogeneous in style and flow. Each song should flow into the next without a strong shift in tempo, this helps dancers develop rhythm and a connection to the music which grows throughout tanda.

1950s Instrumentals Tanda Set
This is a later, instrumental set. The songs are good, but very strong.. almost too strong.
A La Gran Muneca Rodolfo Biagi   1950 Tango
Racing Club Rodolfo Biagi   1950 Tango
El Recodo Rodolfo Biagi   1952 Tango
El Internado Rodolfo Biagi   1953 Tango
Organito De La Tarde Rodolfo Biagi   1956 Tango
         
         
Mixed Tanda Set
This is a mixed tanda set, because it is hard to find other songs to put with Belgica, with it's dramatic pauses. So, here are some other songs with somewhat similar pauses in them. El Yaguarón, also goes nicely at the end.
Sentimiento Gaucho Rodolfo Biagi   1942 Tango
Arrebato Rodolfo Biagi Alberto Lago 1942 Tango
Belgica Rodolfo Biagi   1942 Tango
Guapo Y Varon Rodolfo Biagi Jorge Ortiz 1939 Tango
         
Alberto Amor Tanda Set: Romantic
This is one of my favorite sets. Often people don't realize it is Biagi, because it is so much calmer than most of his music.
Tus labios me dirán Rodolfo Biagi  Alberto Amor  1945 Tango
?Lucienne? Rodolfo Biagi  Alberto Amor  1946 Tango
Seamos Amigos Rodolfo Biagi  Alberto Amor  1944 Tango

Hugo Duval Tanda Set
A later tanda collection with Hugo Duval. They are pretty songs, but a little overly dramatic. You can tell that the singer is the star, more than the music, so I would play this sparingly.

En El Lago Azul Rodolfo Biagi Hugo Duval 1950s Tango
Sangre de Mi Sangre Rodolfo Biagi Hugo Duval  1950s Tango
