ARIWO

ARIWO at The Fleece Sun 2 June 2019 from 7.30pm

WDC and Sound UK present; Ariwo 'Quasi' UK Tour

“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.

Notes: All (u16s accompanied)

Tickets: £13.50  

 

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email gigs@thefleece.co.uk for more details.
