Worm Disco Club in association with sounduk, are very happy to announce the return of Ariwo.
They are about to release their 2nd LP 'Quasi', a record of mesmerising and deep scope, featuring some hugely talented musicians, and they will be visiting Bristol as part of a nationwide tour to play their immersive live set.
Those who follow what we do, will remember we first bought this act to Bristol, last September for a proper stomping event at Fiddlers.
We rate their blend of huge bass, hypnotic electronic rhythms & atmospherics, mixed with live percussion and Trumpet as one of the most heady & powerful dancefloor led sounds out there.
"Dark, mesmeric, uplifting and danceable.” (Evening Standard),
Ariwo’s sets are arresting affairs, holding audience’s hostage to their hypnotic grooves as they invite them into a new sound world.
Ariwo (meaning 'Noise' in Yoruba) 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, a special guest to be announced.
