The version most people know is tangos gitanos. Here is a nice

one with all the luminaries of Granada:

Here is a choreography from El Real Conservatorio Profesional de

Danza "Mariemma" in Madrid:

There are many other versions of Tangos. Tangos de Triana,

are in A or Am rather than A Flamenco mode. Triana (The name

is a reference to the Emperor Trajan who was born near Seville)

was a gypsy area across the river from the old walled town of

Seville. Today it is part of central Seville. The gypsies were mostly

forced out in the late 1950s and early 1960s and many moved

to the Barrio El poligono de San Pablo.

One version of Tangos de Triana is Tangos del Titi, the personal

style of Manuel "el Titi". "In the morning he was on the docks

unloading sacks and evening was at the Cristina Hotel Parrilla,

the first tablao in Seville."

Here is el Titi himself singing in the old Triana taberna "El Morapio

de Triana" which was on Calle Pelay Correa. This video comes

from the old TV series Rito y Geographía del Flamenco, #17,

"Triana", first broadcast 1972-2-19:

The letras for this performance are here.

Here he is in 1983, singing (and dancing!) with backup which

includes Manuel Molina (of Lola y Manuel) on the guitar in the

"El Angel" series episode Triana Pura y Pura:

The second singer is also singing Tangos de Triana but not

Tangos del Titi.

Here Miguel Poveda sings and La Lupi dances in an extract from

the DVD "Real" recorded live in the Teatro Real de Madrid (2012).

and here is a modern performance that starts with and is inspired

by the video of El Titi. The modern performance starts about 2

minutes in....
