The work on this album lasted 4 years and was made on 2 continents. While Boyko produced in his studio in Sofia, Miguel Di Genova recorded vocal and piano parts in Buenos Aires. The biggest challenge was to find the right balance between milonga and gypsy style. This required to not limit the energy of the tango by the sound force of a gypsy band. Another difficulty was that the musicians never met physically. Most of the songs were composed originally by Miguel di Genova for Otros Aires. Boyko on the other hand side contributed with „Aide Ko Pazari“ and “Romano Chavo” two compositions, that are based on gypsy traditionals. “Milonga Sentimental“ and „La Yumba“ are classical tango tunes by other renown composers.
The new album „Balkan Airs” is phenomenal mix of two great musical cultures between Argentina and the Balkans. Two musical languages that are mixed together to a melodic, catchy new genre that will convince both fans of Otros Aires and Gypsy fans.
