This is a list of notable tango singers, that is, notable singers who are accomplished in the tango genre. Many tango musicians have been both musicians and singers, but this does not exclude from this list. While the vast majority of earlier tango singers were Argentines, this list illustrates the diversification of tango over time, with the growth in female stars such as Susana Rinaldi and the spread of tango around the world, as far as Russia (Pyotr Leshchenko), Poland (Jerzy Petersburski), and Turkey (İbrahim Özgür).

  • İbrahim Özgür Turkey (1905-1959) was dubbed "The King of Turkish Tango" for his singing and composition, after an earlier successful career in jazz. He began tango recordings in 1938. His nostalgic, "velvet" voice was well-suited for his mournful songs, haunted by his unrequited love for an Indian princess he met during his grand tour of Asia in the 1930s. His most famous such song, Mavi Kelebek ("Blue Butterfly"), won him a legion of female fans.[4] Özgür was the first male tango singer to rise to prominence in Turkey, where the tango tradition had been dominated by women.[8]
