Electrocutango is an electrotango project founded by Sverre Indris Joner in Oslo, Norway. Their only album Felino is originally the music written for "TanGhost," a tango/theater performance based on Henrik Ibsen's play Ghosts. The show was choreographed by famous Argentinian tango dancer Pablo Verón, who also acted in the performance. The music was awarded the prestigious Norwegian "Edvard" prize for "Best music accompanying other forms of art" in 2005.
