Tonight, the Royal Albert Hall will be turning its attention towards Argentina, as it hosts the very first Tango Prom. Introduced by Katie Derham and featuring stars from Strictly Come Dancing, the evening will twist, turn, strut and posture like no other. To mark the occasion, we have compiled a 'Tango Favourites' playlist, featuring many leading names from the classical music world, plus, of course, a couple of tango legends themselves.
