El Baile Alemán is a 2000 album by Señor Coconut Y Su Conjunto (Uwe Schmidt). It is an album of Kraftwerk covers done in a Latin American style.

Although mostly note-for-note covers, some tracks add embelishments such as "cha-cha-chas". On the song "Autobahn" the radio transmission is from Latin Radio dial tuning.

The song "Home Computer" also has some lyrics from "It's More fun to Compute" from the album Computer World.

"Tour de France" was released as a remixed single, the release also including vocal and instrumental cover versions of "Expo 2000", which are not included on the album.

Removed from later pressings of the album (by request of the composers) was a version of Radioactivity which had appeared as the second track on the initial pressing of the album. A spoken 'Introduction' track was added ahead of the original album opener Showroom Dummies.
