Malena sings the tango as no other
Pouring out her heart in every verse.
Her voice, a scent of slum weeds,
Her sorrow, that of the bandoneón.

Malena is such a classic that all major orchestras from the Golden Age have probably recorded their own version. They’re all slightly different, so click away and enjoy this beautiful song over and over…

To discover the lyrics in Spanish and English, have a look at the translation we released earlier this week.
