Here is a quick guide to how I have organized the blog:
Click on the title Poesía de gotán in the top banner to return to the main page.
The titles of all the posts are the original Spanish titles of the tango. If you know the title of the song you want, simply type it in the Search box at right to retrieve it.
Posts are also alphabetized (again by original Spanish title). To see all tangos starting with a particular letter, simply click that letter in the side menu.
If you cannot find the song you want, that means I haven’t posted or translated it yet! You can always request any translation by emailing me directly at derrick.delpilar[at]gmail.com. Please write “TANGO TRANSLATION: Title” in the subject line. It may take a while before I have time to translate the tango you want, but it will go in my queue. If another translation appears before your request, it’s not because I’m ignoring it—I have a huge folder full of translations on my computer and often I upload one I’ve already done, when I feel it’s ready.
The sound files on this site are included for illustrative purposes only. Those wishing to obtain high quality versions for their personal collections should purchase commercially available copies.
If you can't get to a record store in Buenos Aires, a great many tangos are available, song by song, in meticulously digitized versions from http://www.tangotunes.com/ and others can be found on the iTunes music store or Amazon (transfer quality varies widely).
Though he no longer has inventory available, Michael Lavocah's superb http://milonga.co.uk/ can help you determine which CDs might be best to buy used.
