Biography

Tanghetto is a musical group based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and one of the most important on the neo tango scene.

The style of Tanghetto is a blend of tango and electronic music. Formed in 2001 by producer and songwriter Max Masri and composer and instrumentalist Diego S. Velázquez, the band’s lineup includes bandoneon, violoncello, acoustic piano, acoustic 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. It was nominated for a Latin Grammy award in 2004, and reached platinum status in Argentina in 2006. In late 2004 the group released an album from a side project called Hybrid Tango, in which some different world music styles are blended with their sound, such as flamenco, candombe, and jazz. This was also nominated for a Latin Grammy award in 2005.

In early 2005 a compilation of different electronic and neo-tango artists was released in Buenos Aires under the name Tangophobia Vol. 1: Contemporary sounds of Buenos Aires, including five unreleased tracks by Tanghetto.
