Tango Mercurio's Golden Age Tango Starter Kit

Thank-you so much for the great compilation - as a new tanguera having this playlist is priceless!
— Veronica from Newport, RI

Becoming familiar with the rhythms and cadences of authentic tango dance music is an important part of the learning process! The Kit is a list of downloadable tango mp3s that you can get from iTunes, Amazon, or Rhapsody.

What makes it so special? Well, this is not a compilation CD that has only 3 or 4 good dance tunes on it. The Kitwas created by tango DJs and instructors and has 24 songs that you will hear frequently in milongas and classrooms around the world. We made it affordable at $23.76. We believe this music will help you "absorb" tango and bring you closer to success and enjoyment on the dance floor.

Special thanks to Daniela Borgialli of Access Tango and to Anthony Lara and Victoria Wood in Washington, DC for contributing to this list.
