New Tango Band Otros Aires and RoughCoastAudio to Perform at Celtic Connections 2011

Otros Aires
Argentina’s Otros Aires and RoughCoastAudio will perform on Wednesday January 19th at 8pm at Old Fruitmarket.

Otros Aires create a cutting-edge synthesis of classic tango with electronica, rock and urban dance beats. Described by Toronto’s Small World Music as “one of the most unique and compelling audiovisual live shows in contemporary global fusion”, their sound incorporates traditional acoustic instrumentation – including bandoneón, piano and guitar – with programming, sequencing and samples of vintage tango recordings. With their dynamic ensemble interplay honed by extensive international touring since they formed in 2003, Otros Aires recently released their fourth album Tricota.

January 19th also features the debut live performance from RoughCoastAudio, a new folk/electronica project masterminded by multi-instrumentalist Ewan MacPherson. In the mix are Gaelic, Scots and Norwegian song, plus new compositions merging Celtic, Nordic, classical and east European influences with rock and dance grooves. A nine-piece line-up includes vocalists Maeve Mackinnon, Siobhan Miller, Anne Sofie Linge Valdal and Naomi Harvey, fiddler Patsy Reid and bassist Conrad Molleson.
