Balkan is currently very hip around here and is played very often as tanda or as an entire balkan party. There are lots of beautiful tango- or milong-able non-tangos
Bregović "Serbetico" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klAAtuIc5Sc
Bregović "Bubamara" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg44qKSbsdQ
I love Goran Bregovic- Maki Maki is one of my favorite alterative songs
There's at least one song by Balkan Beat Box that I like for dancing also, but I cna't remember it off hand.
is it Meboli (feat. Vlada Tomova) 3:54 Balkan Beat Box
I would add Orange Blossom; Desert Dub
I like "Donde Voy", by Tish Hinojosa. It has a lovely melody and heart-breaking lyrics. It's actually a waltz, but too slow to be a vals crusada, so I would dance it as a tango, but still in 3/4.
And, based on Bastet's comment, I like the idea of playing alternative tango for cortinas, but playing the entire tune.
it's Quand esct-ce qu'on arrive. (On my iPod)
we do that for casual milongas. we'll play entire songs of alternative as the cortina or other dance style so people can do a little salsa or cha cha or WCS in between if they feel like it.
Another I like but haven't got to try out in a milonga setting is Lisa Ekdahl's "Slow Knowing Smile"
There are also some lovely movie tracks for romantic tandas, f.i.
from "The Postman" (barefooted version) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtXowOvD4Qs
from "The Piano" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-2lL0QFApk
It belongs in non-tango dub genre...
Kevin Johansen is touring in the UK...but I think he's a one hit wonder myself......
the other stuff on youtube is...not to my taste....
La Valse d'Amelie
Yann Tiersen is still a permanent feature of vals or world tandas here. He is currently on tour in Mexico and will visite Hamburg in may. Already bought the tickets. And, I really love the rock version of Amelie !!
I'm kinda sick of it myself... but it is very dance'able.
Some more ideas:
Mad World - Gary Jules
Hijo De La Luna - Mecano
Valsapena - Cirque Du Soleil (probably trim the intro for length and dancability)
Das Gefuhl - Annett Louisan
the new Gotan cd is boring...verrry very dull.
