Max Masri is a Producer, Composer and Songwriter. He is also a Mixing and Mastering engineer for many of his projects. Max Masri is the founder and leader of Tanghetto, a pioneering group in the fusion of tango and electronic music, and also of the Constitution Music label.
After finishing high school, he pursued studies in composition under the tutelage of Virgilio Expósito, a renowned tango legend and Max became one of his last pupils. During this period, Max began producing and composing music, blending tango with electronic elements, and contributing to the emergence of a new genre known as electronic tango.
Max Masri, a pioneer in the fusion of tango and electronic music, began experimenting with this genre in the late 1990s. At the time, he called his studio project "electrotango" and later recorded numerous demos under the name "Electrotango Sessions" from 2001 to 2003. Many of these demos eventually became part of Tanghetto's seminal album, Emigrante (electrotango). It was during these sessions that the formation of Tanghetto began to take shape, and by mid-2003, Tanghetto was officially formed. The group has since gone on to become a leading force in the electrotango movement, with Max Masri as the primary producer, composer, and songwriter behind their success.
Max Masri has been the primary producer, composer, and songwriter behind all of Tanghetto's releases to date. His innovative approach to blending tango with diverse musical influences has contributed to a new wave of tango movement. Tanghetto's albums have been nominated four times for the Latin Grammy Awards in the categories of Best Tango and Best Instrumental Album, and also winning two Gardel Awards in Argentina. Max's primary artistic goal is to deconstruct traditional music and create something novel.
As the main musician and leader of Tanghetto, Max has performed at prestigious venues in Argentina and around the world, including the Gran Rex Theatre in Buenos Aires, Symphony Hall in Chicago, the O2 Arena in London, the Juárez Theatre in Guanajuato, Mexico, the Lincoln Center in New York City, and the Ballena Azul Symphonic Hall of the Centro Cultural Kirchner in Buenos Aires, where he and Tanghetto presented new material and collaborated with iconic Argentinean artists.
