    Looking for candombes recorded by modern orquestras (2000–present). Anyone have some favorites?

    I like tango negro by juan carlos caceres : (toca tango is a candombe, too, i think)

    I think there are a few candombes on every single of his albums, so its worth checking all of them out.

    I like la chicana for milongas and candombes, too - she has quite a few.

    And of course melingo

    Most modern tango orchestras should have their own versions of the classics, too.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Now I need a third danceable song that could go with the following two:

    Do you really mean Candombes, or Candombeadas, by chance?

    lol. It would be kinda fun to do an actual candombe when somebody asks for a candombe set - just to see what people would do.

    Even the people that do folk dance in addition to tango seem to be much more into the rural folk dances - i know a lot of people who started as folk dancers and then moved into tango, but i don't think i know anybody who has actually studied argentine candombe.

    Hmm, that is difficult - tbh, i don't quite hear what theme you are going for - what shared idea between these two do you want to hear in the third?
