Ariko Swinging Through Mariposa

05 May Ariko Swinging Through Mariposa

ariko1Smiles 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 their influences ranging from La bottine souriante and Natalie McMaster, to Stéphane Grappelli.

Their album, La première récolte, provides excellent listening.
