„Big man dancing“ is the subtitle given to the fourth studio album by Otros Aires. And indeed, he is dancing again, Otros Aires, the „Big Man“ of the new Tango who cannot by overseen and ignored any more.
10 restless years with concert tours throughout the whole world, several recording session are behind the four Argentinians. They converted themselves in the epitome of a new elegant and contemporary tango that calls the dance-floor its home but is deeply rooted in the traditions of Buenos Aires.
Consequentially “Otros Aires 4” was created on the road between backstage, sound-check, stages and holiday at home. Lots of the songs are dedicated to the passionate tango dancers Otros Aires plays for at concerts and Milongas from Moscow to Mexico. For them the musicians around band-leader Miguel Di Genova mix Latin-, hip-hop-, rock and funk-grooves into their sound and continue this way the heritage of tango renovator Astor Piazzolla.
But of course on the road there is a lot of time for thinking. The song “Perfume de Mujer” treats the beautiful moments that fly away quickly like the perfume of a woman is passing by. Miguel Di Genova wrote this song after his father had passed away.
Next to music are all the anecdotes the musicians experience on tour and all the interesting people they meet a great remedy for melancholy. The owner of a small hostel in Palermo turned out to be a great rapper. As “Othello Man” he is now featured on “Raro”. The special thing about it is that he raps in Sicilian. Apart from him the album features also the tango vocalists Omar Mollo and Agustin Fuertes plus harmonica player Joe Powers.
With “4” Otros Aires is spreading more and more over the dance-floors and CD shelves of their fans and music lovers. Again on this album they never stand still and diffuse the tango again and again to new places.
„4“ is the first album from this band avialable on vinyl. The 180 gramm vinyl is presented in a gatefold cover.
