27 May Ariko Making Their Mariposa Return
Smiles ignite, toes tap and hips swivel when Franco-Ontarian sister group, Ariko, reaches into its quiver of tunes.
Their fiddle-based music takes you on a journey through canadiana, jazz, gypsy swing and Celtic, with a repertoire that is energetic, rich in harmonies, and spiced with a mix of bilingual, traditional and original material.
Ariko has made numerous appearances at Festival du loup and other festivals, various Métis Nation events, and at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, performing music inspired by influences ranging from La Bottine Souriante and Natalie McMaster, to Stéphane Grappelli.
They’re making a return to our Mariposa stages this summer following a well-received debut performance last year
