The old milonga campera written by Nelly Omar is a real gem. Love or leave Repetto’s nasal voice, but the guitars sound lovely. Find Nelly Omar’s recording Pa’Dumesnil, she sings it like a true country girl she was. TRACK: Cristobal Repetto – Pa’Dumesnil

Johns was a versatile German musician with refreshing take on Argentine tango. This lyrical piano piece is a very old tango without title or authorship. Solo piano, great for smaller gatherings. Klaus Johns – Viejo Tango

Traditionally La Payanca was played as a perky tango-milonga. Aslan completely re-thought the old piece: it sounds like a solemn tango. Great to dance!
