Well, I agree that this arrangement is not really a tango, but I'm giving them credit and assuming they wanted that flavor..not really Greek to my ears.I recall another one you posted that was in 3/4...!! must have given the argies fits :)
I think this version is great. Years ago, in Guatemala City, there was a bar calle Bar. It had a juke box that played several Guatemalan songs with guitars and not marimba. It was a revelation. I had considered us so different from the rest of Latin Americans, but our music, like Rio Polochic, is part of the greater Latin American culture. There is a bit of Spanish soul underneath the hormigo.
I learned a while back that 'Juke Box' is an English tern that derives from a Mayan original!
