Ariwo

“Dark, mesmeric, uplifting and danceable.” (Evening Standard), Ariwo’s sets are arresting affairs, holding audiences hostage to their hypnotic grooves as they invite them into a new sound world.

In Yoruba the word Ariwo means “noise”, which captures the band’s desire to combine traditional rhythms into a live electronic performance, challenging perceptions of ancestral music, and connecting diverse cultures from around the world.  

Ariwo bring together Iranian electronic composer Pouya Ehsaei; Carlos Acosta and Irakere’s Latin Grammy-winning percussion virtuoso Hammadi Valdes; figurehead of London’s Cuban music scene, Oreste Noda; and Ropeadope’s award-winning Jazz trumpeter Jay Phelps. Plus special guest acclaimed UK saxophonist Camilla George.
