Ever wondered what was the title of this tango you heard and whose orchestra and singer you only know about? Ever came across a "track 1" in your musical library that should be named "Al compás del corazón" (oops!!) ? More, have you ever wondered what other songs that singer you love so much recorded, who is the composer, what are the lyrics...? Well then you will find this tool to be more than useful.

What is it?

EL RECODO TANGO MUSIC is a powerful database designed to navigate easily through tons of tango recordings. Each recording comes with a 10s high quality audio sample for identification purpose. With last improvements, you can now also find tandas suggestions for DJing, alternative recordings of the same tango, more lyrics and a link to share it as a TANGO MUSIC QUIZ.

How to listen more than 10s?

Only 10s long clips are available in the database (useful enough to identify what you are looking for). By clicking on the icon , you can get more about the recording, including a link to search it on Youtube. Some of these recordings are available on records, others are harder to find on discs with that quality or are simply unedited to this day.

Of course you can contact me for more...

How does it work?

Quick search: Use the input field on the navigation menu. This fast search will look at nearly all the fields in the database.

Advanced search: For more precise searches, use the Advanced search menu. here you can search specific titles, eras, styles, singers, composers, authors and lyrics, as well as a combination of those categories.

Dates: The dates are displayed in a yyyy-mm-dd (year, month, day) format. In case of an unknown or partially known date, the number 0 is used as a joker (ie. 1941-08-00).

Sorting: When a list is displayed, you can click on a column to sort the tracks by recording by any field. By default they'll be sorted by recording date.

Share your search: You can easily share a search you've made by copying the web address (URL) displayed in the upper part of your Internet browser.

Favorites: Sign up with your email and password and bookmark your favorite tangos! To do so, just click on the facing each recording.

Get more: Get full details about any recording by clicking on the icon: lyrics, musicians of the orchestra, label, more recordings of the same title, and even some tandas suggestions!

POST A COMMENT About El Recodo Tango Music

Miguel Recuerdo
Gracias por tu respuesta, Gregory. Aunque me parece prudente aclarar Discografía Parcial hasta 1971, que completaremos oportunamente hasta su totalidad de 484 títulos grabados.
Gregory Diaz
Hola Miguel,
Los datos son correctos, solo que como aparece aquí, se presenta la discografía completa hasta 1951 solamente. Después de esta fecha se presentan 159 grabaciones por ahora, e iré agregando mas, pero poco a poco, con tiempo... Si ves algún error discográfico, no dudes en escribir un comentario en la página de la grabación correspondiente. Saludos
Miguel Recuerdo
Las grabaciones oficiales de Aníbal Troilo en los Sellos RCA Victor, Odéon, TK y Music Hall, llegan a 485. Los datos discográficos aquí publicados no son correctos.
Gilbert Baraduc
Bravo pour votre site exceptionnel
Es una aplicación excelente , muy buena para compartir conocimiento y memorias.
carmine de marco

Eugen Vonfranzen
Realmente muy bueno !!! Por un TDJ y por todos los aficionados de tango...... siempre necesita aprender algo de nuevo
Super site pour un D'J afin de monter une tanda. Tous les morceaux sont à sa disposition
Vanessa García

geuens rudy
a proposal for a new tanda to add in the list! Juan D'Arienzo con Osvaldo Ramos(cantante):
Remembranza (1964) , Mi dolor (1972) , El bar de Rosendo (1972) , Si dejaras de quererme (1974)
javier Lemi
Ya publiqué elogios a la página, solo deseo peguntar porque me cuesta encontrar la discografía de Carlos Gardel Gras Javier Lemi
javier Lemi
El lugar ideal , donde podemos hallar toda la iformación tanguera, felicito a sus creadores. Javier Lemi (Panelista del espacio de tango) del magazine que se irradia los domingos de 10 a 12 hs por la FM 105.9 y por la Web www.parquevida.com y que denominamos ' CORAZÓN AL SUR' Gracias.
massimo sicali
Complimenti per il grande lavoro svolto!
Vorrei segnalare che il tango Nadine credo sia stato registrato nel 1964 e non nel 1954 come riportato nella pagina.
joaquin planas
espectacular, vuelta al tango!!!
Es viable descargar unas canciones a mi memory par el auto

Superbe travail Grégory et je pense que tu n'es pas tout seul, donc aussi ton équipe ! ce site est une mine d'or. Quel plaisir de découvrir de nouvelles pièces et d'en redécouvrir. Un grand Merci !
Romain NEGRE
Merci beaucoup aux auteurs qui ont eu l'initiative de créer ce site. C'est une mine d'or pour qui veut approfondir ses connaissances musicales dans le tango.
Mirjana Norma
Merci beaucoup pour la possibilité de participer au Quiz. Il entraîne de nouveau mes savoirs enfouis or autrement dit il révèle mes connaissances apparemment perdues - il fait surgir le temps perdu: les inoubiables expériences que j'avais eu avec la musique mais aussi avec les personnes avec lesquelles j'avais partagé la musique dansant....

I recently had an issue with Chrome: reading audio was impossible (not only from El Recodo Tango). A simple Chrome update solved it (Menu -- Help -- About)

Beautiful work. I love the information available. Thank you :)
Gregory Diaz
Bonjour Frank, Aucune base d'information ne peut prétendre être parfaite et sans erreur quand on arrive à une telle quantité d'information. Si tu constate une erreur ou si tu as un doute sur un enregistrement, merci de poster un commentaire dans la page correspondante (URL contenant '?id=' suivi d'un nombre). Merci!
Frank Hoonakker
Bonjour, je voudrais savoir d'où vienne les informations de votre base. Sont-elles validées et par qui ? Je trouve plein d'incohérences ou de manque avec ma propre bibliothèque de musique, parfais c'est de ma faute, et parfois mes données ont l'air correctes. Peut-on également contribuer si on détecte des erreurs (autrement que uniquement par commentaire)? En tous cas bravo pour le travail, c'est super !!
diego velasquez

Hola Wilson y muchas gracias por tu comentario. Este es el tema que buscas ERT-8041

wilson rodríguez
Reconozco y valoro el esfuerzo de haber logrado esta página, y les aliento a que sigan ayudándonos a disfrutar de espacios como éstos que mantienen viva la tradición de los pueblos. Cordiales saludos desde Uruguay. (yo estoy buscando un tango que toca la orquesta de Osvaldo Fresedo con la voz de Ernesto Fama, y se llama ACOSTA EN PUNTA, hasta ahora, sólo he encontrado la letra, pero no el audio. Cordiales saludos.
Andreas Gierstorfer
And, his lesser well known versions are also missing:
1964 Tango -- Orquesta Miguel Caló / Ranko Fujisawa
1965 Tango -- Orquesta Miguel Caló / Roberto Luque
1966 Tango -- Orquesta Miguel Caló / Raúl Ledesma
Andreas Gierstorfer

Gregory Diaz
Dear friends, an improvement here... The lyrics page disappeared. Instead, the database is combined into this music page. As a result, it is now possible to perform advanced searches including composers, authors and lyrics extracts, combined with usual recording data (orchestra, singer, title...). Enjoy!
Mat Mat
Juste un grand bravo pour ce travail ! De quoi organiser sa bibliothèque itunes de 35 Go dans un bordel sans nom ! Merci !
Hebert Fayet
Les quiero informar amigos que yo soy un coleccionista de tango desde hace 45 años y si en algo los pudiera ayudar lo haría con mucho gusto.
