Biography

Tanghetto is a musical group based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and one of the most important on the neo tango scene, and the most important electrotango band based in Buenos Aires.
The style of Tanghetto is a blend of tango and electronic music. The experimentation in studio started in early 2000 and 2001, but Tanghetto was formed as a band project in late 2002. Tanghetto’s concept was conceived by Producer and Composer/Songwriter Max Masri and then joined in the project by Guitarist/Composer Diego S. Velázquez. The band’s current lineup includes bandoneon, violoncello, acoustic piano, acoustic and electric guitar, electronic and acoustic drums, samplers, and synthesizers. The main feature of their music, apart from the balance of electronic and ethnic sounds, is the strong presence of melody and song structure.
Tanghetto released their first album, Emigrante (electrotango) in 2003. A concept and idea of Max Masri inspired in the economic crisis that Argentina was facing back in 2001 and also was inspired in the feelings of distress generated by the massive exile of many young Argentines, that decided to flee from their country, in a desperate move to find a future. Emigrante was nominated for a Latin Grammy award in 2004, and reached platinum status in Argentina in 2006 and double platinum in 2009.
