A new series in Rotary Hall, the idea being 'up close and personal'.
Ariko features the vocal harmonies and fiddle stylings of sisters Nicole, Jill and Kelly along with a driving and energetic rhythm section delivered by their parents Laura and Louis. Performance highlights since their debut in 2003 include the Main Stage at Mariposa Folk Festival, Le spectacle de la solidarité franco-ontarienne in Ottawa, and the Pan Am Games at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre.
Ariko’s 2017 release, “Portrait de famille” is spirited and inviting. At the core of each song, sisters Nicole, Jill and Kelly join voices in harmony. Drawing inspiration from Celtic melodies, dynamic fiddle tunes and zydeco rhythms, Ariko combines unique arrangements of French-Canadian folkloric repertoire with original compositions inspired by their traditional roots. “Portrait de famille” is truly a joyful portrait of this musical family
