Otros Aires is an Argentine 21st-century tango music group founded in 2003 in Barcelona by Argentine musician and architect Miguel Di Genova.

Otros Aires mixes early tango and milonga structures from the beginning of the 20th century (Gardel, Razzano, D'Arienzo, etc.) with electronic sequences, melodies and lyrics from the 21st century.

The project counts many collaborators like Diego Ramos (piano and arrangements), Chloë Pfeiffer (piano), Lalo Zanelli (piano), Martin Bruhn (drums), Martin Paladino (drums), Manu Mayol (drums and 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), Korey Ireland (bandoneon), Joe Power (harmonica), Nick Wadlew (cover art), Pablo Meketa (cover art), Marcelo Sofia (cover art), Charly Fiorentino (cover art), Miru Trigo (photography) and Santiago Saponi (video director), among others.

On December 11, 2004, known as "Tango day", Otros Aires released its first CD at the Carlos Gardel House Museum [es], commemorating the birthday of the singer.

The band's quick international success has led to them touring the world since 2006. With about 40 tours, including more than 200 cities in Europe, North America and South America, Otros Aires has performed at some of the most important venues and world music festivals in the world, including Lincoln Center (NYC), Dublin National Concert Hall, Bardentreffen Festival (Nuremberg), Amsterdam Roots Festival, Greensound Festival (Bucharest), and Pirineos Sur Festival (Spain), and also at the world's most relevant tango festivals including Buenos Aires Tango Festival several times.

Otros Aires' songs have been featured in television shows like Dancing with the Stars and America's Got Talent in the US and Strictly Come Dancing in the UK.
