    Hi I was looking for an argentine tango song to dance to. I can't make my choices so would anybosy help me? I was looking for a tango with an oriental twist or a tango where I can have drama in it . not to fast not too slow. any ideas ? I want something with character. It is for a solo

    Is it a tango solo, or some other type of dance? If you are not doing a tango, many pieces by Piazzolla might be useful - lot's of character and drama - but not too good for dancing Argentine Tango.

    I am to dance an argentine tango solo with my instructor and I wanted to choose something special , I don't want to dance to a very well known song like la cumparsita , choclo or santa maria or so forth, although I like them yet I want something special.

    I wanted to clarify, there is nothing really Oriental in the song I suggested, yet I believe it is a nice song.

    It is hard to pick, there are thousands pretty tangos.
    Would you prefer an instrumental, or with a singer?

    Some other suggestions:

    If you want something kinda "famous", but not as well-known as Cumparsita and El Choclo, perhaps Recuerdo or Volver would do. Those tangos were in the movies:

    Here you have some dramatic moments. And it is not so difficult song:

    I think this one is from Morocco - I has been one of my favorites for long time (I'm the dead leaf)


    There is tangos from Egypt too but they are with difficult rhythms

    More in the middle of the Argentine and the Arabic tangos are those from Turkey. There is many more coming up when you play this in YouTube


    Russian and Polish tangos are nice too . . . . .

    On the other way round - Piazzollas Libertango with Arabic performer just to show that it has oriental character



    Or with a Russian lady
