Libertango is a composition by tango composer Ástor Piazzolla, published in 1974.

The title is a portmanteau merging "Libertad" (Spanish for liberty) and "Tango", symbolizing Piazzolla's break from classical tango to tango nuevo.

Grace Jones's song I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango) uses the same music, as does Jazz Mandolin Project's song "Jungle Tango" and Guy Marchand's song "Moi je suis tango."
