Ariwo with Camilla George

This is a past event which has now ended.

Cuban/Iranian four-piece focused on the rich intersection between electronic music, AfroCuban rhythm, UK jazz and Iranian mysticism. Named one of the ‘5 Acts You Need to Know in 2018’ by Crack Magazine, their 2017 eponymous debut album received 4 stars in Songlines and the Evening Standard.

Ariwo will be joined on stage by MOBO-nominated saxophone player, improviser and composer Camilla George.

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 hypnotic new sound world.

In Yoruba the word Ariwo means “Noise”, a moniker that 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.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
