Feeling a bit camera shy


Tanghetto are not only pioneers in fusing tango and electronica but also absolute trendsetters in the new tango scene of Buenos Aires. The band took beyond the very concept of electrotango, adding to the mixture some elements of traditional tango, jazz, diverse South American influences and rocking drum beats. After 10 years, with 4 studio albums, a live DVD, a live album, soundtracks, platinum and gold albums, tours in more than 20 countries worldwide, awards and nominations, Tanghetto still surprises from the studio
and from the stage, with innovative recordings and a powerful audiovisual live show.

The “Tanghetto sound” is unique; it's a fusion of diverse sources of inspiration, both contemporary and traditional, that converge in Buenos Aires with the bandoneon (the nostalgic and characteristic instrument of the tango). Bandoneon takes the singer's role and is surrounded by diverse acoustic instruments and a sonic wall of synths and samplers. The band's music has been defined by the press as “(...) distinguished by its singular combination of simplicity, sophistication, sensibility, high energy and no prejudices”.

The band started out in 2001, based on an idea of Max Masri, the youngest and last disciple of the late tango legend Virgilio Exposito (composer of “Naranjo en Flor”). Max joined forces with Diego S. Velázquez and together they worked on what would eventually become “Emigrante”, the debut album. Released in 2003, that album reached in short time the Platinum status and was nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2004. “Emigrante” is a concept album disco conceptual inspired in the Argentine diaspora of 2001/2002. The musical textures recall the experiences of migrants in the “Little Argentinas”, communities of argentines living abroad. The concept is present in the very name of the band, being it the combination of the words “tango” and “ghetto".
