Tango CDs: Music is the indispensable foundation for dancing the tango. Specialized labels provide CDs with the recordings of the Orchestras of the Golden Age. Some publish contemporary music.
Club Tango Argentino (CTA) is a private label. Akihito Baba-san is based in Tokio/Japan and publishes it. It is probably the most famous and important private Tango label worldwide. They produce each one in very limited numbers and do not reprint it if it went out of print, which can happen within weeks.
