Otros Aires is an Argentine XXI century Tango music project, founded in 2003 in Barcelona by Argentine musician/architect Miguel Di Genova.

Otros Aires mixes the first tangos and milongas structures from the beginning of the last century (Gardel, Razzano, D'Arienzo, etc.) with electronic sequences, melodies and lyrics of the 21st century.

This project counts with many collaborators like: Diego Ramos (Piano & arrangements), Chloë Pfeiffer (Piano), Lalo zanelli (Piano), Martin Bruhn (Drums), Martin Paladino (Drums), Manu Mayol (Drums & production) Pablo Potenzoni (Drums), Javier Saume Mazzei (Drums), Christian Maturano (Drums), Carlos Ocorso (Percussion), Hugo Satorre (Bandoneon), Lisandre Donoso (bandoneon), Herve Esquis (bandoneon), Emmanuel Trifilio (bandoneon), Simone Van Der Veerden (bandoneon), Joe Power (Harmonica), Nick Wadlew (Cover Drawings), Pablo Meketa (Cover Drawings), Marcelo Sofia (Cover Arts), Charly Fiorentino (Cover Arts) Miru Trigo (Photography) and Santiago Saponi (Video Director) between others.

On December 11, 2004, known as "Tango day", Otros Aires presented its first CD at the Carlos Gardel's House Museum, commemorating the birthday of the singer.

With about 40 tours around, including more that 200 cities of Europe, North America and South America, OTROS AIRES was presented in some of the most important venues and world music festivals of the world like: Lincoln Center (NYC), Dublin National Concert Hall, Bardentreffen Festival (Nuremberg), Amsterdam Roots Festival, Greensound Festival (Bucharest), Pirineos Sur Festival (Spain), between others and also at the most relevant tango festivals of the planet including Buenos Aires Tango Festival several times.

OTROS AIRES songs are featured in TV shows like ¨Dancing with the Starts¨ and ¨America´s got talent¨ in US and ¨Strictly Come Dancing¨ in UK.
