I just stumbled across a couple videos that made my day. Both are performances by high school jazz bands of Tonight, We Tango.

The first one features tango dancers (students and faculty!!) and the second features a soloist playing the accordion part on melodica, which sounds fantastic.

Sincere thanks to these bands and the many others who’ve embraced the joy of the Tango.
