Ariwo featuring Ibrahim Owais and Dirar Kalash
Souty, Jerusalem born and raised selector and DJ. He started his electronic musical journey back in 2012 at el-beer, an underground Palestinian venue in Jerusalem. His unique music signature lies in its colorful and carefully curated track selection, blending downtempo, afro rhythmic beats, and organic sounds.
Ariwo sculpts an immersive sound world using a base of Afro-Cuban polyrhythms, carnival melodies, cosmic jazz, and live electronics. The band brings together acclaimed Iranian electronic composer, Pouya Ehsaei, who’s released albums defined by ferociously austere electronic minimalism on Zabte Sote, one of the most in-demand trumpet players from London's jazz scene, Sam Warner, and Ghanaian-born percussionist, vocalist and composer, Afla Sackey.
