Thus, the malambo dancer becomes his own instrument as he performs music rythmically with his lower body in unison to whatever is being payed in a guitar and drum next to him.

 Rough Guide to the Music of Argentina reviews and ratings at MSN Shopping
Some straightforward folksinging from the powerful voice of Lorena Astudillo marks the first departure from the main focus here, but the sound turns quickly enough back to the tango, with a surprisingly capable rendition on the harmonica.
Juan Carlos Caceres updates the sound with a little more rhythm, and two of the brightest lights in instrumental music are presented in sequence, with Osbaldo Piro's emotive bandoneon playing and Roberto Grela's excellent guitar work, both former members of Anibal Troilo's legendary bands.
Walter Rios performs the heaviest, strangest rendition of "La Cumparsita" you're ever likely to hear, followed immediately by another updating of sorts, with the addition of salsa piano riffing to the basics of milonga song.

A pity that Argentina's substantial contribution to the rock en espanol genre is altogether absent from this otherwise excellent compilation.
There are actually other beautiful and haunting styles of music like the upbeat milonga (similar to the tango, but with a musical resolution unlike the "frustrated" final note associated with tango) and ballads.
