La Linea Presents ARIWO

Ariwo made their live premiere via a global online Boiler Room session before wowing the Manana electronic music festival in Santiago de Cuba in 2016; and they’ve been gathering steam ever since, connecting their native Cuban and Iranian musical traditions with electronic music. The band brings together Pouya Ehsaei and three of London’s most influential Cuban musicians: Irakere and Latin Grammy winning percussion virtuoso, Hammadi Valdes; Yussef Kamaal and Sierra Maestra lead trumpeter, Yelfris Valdes; and godfather of London’s Cuban scene, Oreste Noda.
