about

[ABOUT]

Ariwo are a Cuban/Iranian four-piece focused on the rich intersection between electronic music, Afro-Cuban rhythm and Iranian mysticism.

The band brings together POUYA EHSAEI - hailed as belonging “in that precious pile” of Iranian electronic music composers [Boomkat] - and three of London’s most influential Cuban musicians; Irakere and Carlos Acosta’s Latin Grammy winning “percussion virtuoso”, HAMMADI VALDES [Time Out]; Yussef Kamaal and Sierra Maestra lead trumpeter, YELFRIS VALDES; and godfather of London’s Cuban scene, ORESTE NODA.

[REVIEWS]

“Very beautiful atmospheric feeling. The kind of stuff I would put on at DeepSpace” [Francois K - Worldwide FM]
----
“A bold, standout statement with some high-def drum work” [Bleep]
----
“A soundscape that was paralyzing & moving all at once” [Pitchfork]
----
“Their fusion was an instant success, each track spinning out with a psychedelic edge" [Resident Advisor]
----
"Completely unique and brilliant. Ehsaei’s pulsing electronics blend perfectly with deep Afro-Cuban rhythms and Valdés’ virtuoso trumpet lines" [Quinton Scott - Strut Records]
