Ariwo formed in London in 2015 and made their live premiere via a global online Boiler Room session. The band brings together Pouya Ehsaei and three of London's most influential Cuban musicians: Hammadi Valdes, Yelfris Valdes; and godfather of London's Cuban scene, Oreste Noda. Ariwo aim to connect their native musical traditions to electronic music in a way that pushes beyond traditional Cuban and Iranian identity, creating a sound that does not belong to any specific culture.

Support is Soundspecies (live), who explore the territory between traditional rhythmic percussion music and electronic dance music.
