Soundtrack to the movie "Tango"
by Carlos Saura, music by Lalo Schifrin: although a bit dark for my taste, it packs 22 tracks and some are suitable for dancing.
His vast collection of works are highly interpretational yet still suitable for beginners because if his slower and very pronounced "down beats".

Whether instrumental or with vocals you will find that DiSarli's recordings are
quite suitable for dancing, especially for beginners who desire a clear unwavering beat.
Among DiSarli favourites are pieces "Bahia Blanca" and "A La Gran Muneca" which
is also the name one of his albums.

De Caro has written many original Tangos which have been interpreted by many. De Caro's innovative arranging style is said to have influenced among others,
Osvaldo Pugliese and more recently popular new Tango group called El Arranque. Dancers will find his recordings quiet enjoyable to dance to.

Some albums with vocals are danceable. For example:
Francisco Canaro's album Desde el Alma >>

Tanturi's albums will either feature vocalist Enrique Campos or Alberto Castillo and are quite danceable. However, its tempos are often slightly faster. More advanced dancers will have no trouble using the many intricate walking variations to this music. RCA Club's album "Ricardo Tanturi" is good.
