Resources

  • Todo Tango, great archive of info. First resource to find your song info!
  • Tango Info, my second stop if TodoTango does not have full info on the song.
  • SADAIC, useful if neither of the above have info on the composer/lyricist or year. Bear in mind it is not only for tango lists first the family name and then proper name.
  • Hermano Tango, the place to go if you want to find a song to translate.
