Hybrid Tango is a side project by the members of Buenos Aires-based electronic neo-tango band Tanghetto.

Released in December 2004, Hybrid Tango contains twelve instrumental tracks in which, apart from the blend of electronic music and tango that is the distinctive sound of Tanghetto, there are plenty of world-music styles such as flamenco, candombe, and jazz. Acoustic sounds (bandoneón, piano, guitar, cello, and even the Chinese stringed instrument, the erhu) are more predominant than in Tanghetto's debut album Emigrante (Electrotango). The album was produced by Max Masri and coproduced by Diego S. Velázquez.

The album was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award in 2005 and reached gold status in Argentina.
