This week's traditional tanda is a fun set by Anibal Troilo with Francisco Fiorentino singing.
This is a very high energy, rhythmic set. Troilo and Fiorentino were one of the greatest duos in the history of tango and their partnership is often used as the best example of the use of the singer as a true member of the orchestra.Troilo is a favorite of advanced dancers because his music switches back and forth between strong rhythmic sections and more melodic sections.

This week's traditional tanda is a elegant and romantic set by Miguel Caló with Raúl Iriarte singing.
Caló had created a unique sound around Berón's smooth vocal style, which was unlike the other singers of the time. In 1943, Berón left Caló's orchestra to join Demare's orchestra. Caló briefly worked with Jorge Ortiz and Alberto Podesta during 1943, but ended up with Raúl Iriarte, who had a similarly silky vocal quality to Berón.
I often get asked about dancing to tangos with singers. The tango singer has had four distinctive roles over time:
