Libertango with Tango Dancers - Astor Piazzolla. Featuring Tango dancers Amy Teuchert and Jairo Sanchez Rivera http://www.tangueros.com.au Music by TangoOz led by Maggie Ferguson http://www.maggiefergusontango.com

Recently "Libertango" performed by the Bond Quartet featured on the hit TV show "So You Think You Can Dance" SYTYCD making this Argentine Tango red-hot all over again.

Grace Jones's song I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango) is based on the same tune, as does Jazz Mandolin Project's song "Jungle Tango", Guy Marchand's song "Moi je suis tango" and Kati Kovács's song Hívlak.

In 2002, a re-recording of Libertango appeared on Australian/British classical crossover string quartet Bond second album "Shine".

Also Libertango was played by the famous guitarist Al Di Meola in his 2000 album The Grande Passion and by the world-renowned cellist, YoYo Ma, in his 1997 album, Soul of the Tango: The Music of Astor Piazzolla.

Libertango is a composition by tango composer Astor Piazzolla, published in 1974. The title is a portmanteau merging "Libertad" (Spanish for liberty) and "Tango", symbolizing Piazzolla's break from Classical Tango to Tango Nuevo.

Ástor Pantaleón Piazzolla (March 11, 1921 -- July 4, 1992) was an Argentine tango composer and bandoneón player. His oeuvre revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. A virtuoso bandoneónist, he regularly performed his own compositions with different ensembles.

Piazzolla's nuevo tango was distinct from the traditional tango in its incorporation of elements of jazz, its use of extended harmonies and dissonance, its use of counterpoint, and its ventures into extended compositional forms.

By the 1970s Piazzolla was living in Rome, managed by the Italian agent Aldo Pagani, and exploring a leaner, more fluid musical style drawing on more jazz influence, and with simpler, more continuous forms. Pieces that exemplify this new direction include Libertango and most of the Suite Troileana, written in memory of the late Anibal Troilo.
