List Rules Upvote your favorite tango bands and artists

Tango music artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List includes any good tango music band label, album and biographical information when available if you click on the names. This list of the top tango music bands in the world includes all musicians and tango artists who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Tango music groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all tango music bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest tango music bands of all time, since the most famous tango music artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best tango music.

You can click on the tango music band names to see more information about that particular notable tango music group. If they're near the top of the best tango music artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top tango music bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the tango music band names themselves.

Tango bands like Milva and Carlos Gardel are included in this list. You get to decide which ones are the "best" artists by voting for your favorites right on the tango artists list. What will come out on top in the end? Fredrik Hermansson? Rodrigo de la Cadena?

All important, significant and iconic names in tango music music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new tango music bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of tango music, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into tango music music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good tango music bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent tango music bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best tango music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest tango music musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular tango music bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

You can change the order of the list by posting the list to your Tumblr so that they can vote too. (44 items)
