Emigrante (electrotango) is the debut album by Buenos Aires-based electronic neo-tango band Tanghetto. The album was released in 2003, reaching gold sales in early 2005 and soon became platinum and double platinum. In 2004 Emigrante (electrotango) was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award.


Although it is instrumental album, there is an underlying concept through the project: how Argentina, historically a country of immigrants, became a country of emigrants during the economic crisis of 2001. All concepts, names and texts are by Max Masri. Max brought the main composition ideas and artistic production direction while Diego played most of the instruments and co composed most of the songs. The arrangements were done by both Diego and Max.

The music of Emigrante is a balance between the electronically generated sounds and acoustic instruments (bandoneón, piano, and guitar). The album was produced and mixed by Max Masri and coproduced by Diego S. Velázquez.

Emigrante reached platinum sales in Argentina by 2006.

As of 2008, many of the songs included in this album are still played on multiple Argentine TV stations on a daily basis.
