Electronic Ancestral music
Ariwo literally means "noise" in Yoruba. This four-piece band chose the name because they combine traditional rhythms and electro in their live performances to produce a unique sound – a sound that constantly challenges the perception of ancestral music, in a quest exploring different cultures from across the globe. The result is a mix of tradition and contemporary electro that takes you on a journey through a simmering and hypnotising soundscape. Following appearances at the Barbican in London and at the Fusion Festival in Berlin, they will now be showcasing their latest album Quasi on stage at BOZAR.
