Porteno o estanciero, whether from the sophisticated Buenos Aires or the ranches of patagonia, this album offers the musical variety that IS Argentina. Zambas of the countryside or tangos; classical selections (Caminito by Placido Domingo), a beautiful a capela quartet and the religious El Senior Juan Sebastian or the ballad voice of Mercedes Sosa; instrumentals or vocals; all on one CD. When hosting a party for friends visiting from Argentina, this is always on the player. When lonesome for my "segundo pais," this carries me back.

Traditional music of Argentina is incredibly diverse, and its various forms easily reflect regional, cultural and climatic characteristics and influences of both domestic and foreign styles. The arrival of tango put the Argentina on the cultural map of the world, and since the early 1900s, this dance became one of the most popular Latin dances worldwide. During those years, numerous Argentinian music artists tried to openly defy the will of the government and their censorship measures by performing the banned songs, which in some cases led to the reprisals by government forces.

Argentina has its very own brand of music, influenced by the country's history and spiced with its love for tango. Here are our top picks for classic Argentine songs: 1. El Día Que Me Quieras – Carlos Gardel. This is one of the most famous songs in the history of tango. There are some great Argentine rock banks and Soda Stereo is arguably the best of them. The lyrics are short and relatively simple, although you might spend some time trying to work out what Ella durmió al calor de las masas, y yo desperté queriendo soñarla" really means. 6. Rosa Rosa – Sandro. Another classic tango song here, Caminito has been sung by many artists throughout the decades. While tango might not be your cup of tea, if you're in Buenos Aires trying to learn Spanish you might as well give the dancing a go. 8. La Felicidad – Palito Ortega.

Argentine Folk Dance. Argentina has a patchwork of traditional dances covering its large territory.
