Ariel & The Culture

Mar 16, 2022

Esther's Follies

After sharing stages with A-Wall, Boy Pablo, Sofiá Valdés, Luna Luna, & Victor Internet; Ariel & The Culture (Jason Ariel Bobadilla) had a busy 2021. Released independently in 2020, ‘Dame Tu Amor’, an indie cumbia, was the public's first look at Ariel’s new and unique style of Indie Pop music. After going viral on TikTok, Dame Tu Amor eventually reached the pages of Bandcamp, Remezcla, NPR’s Alt.Latino, & more. 

Originating as a band, Ariel shifted to becoming a solo artist in 2020 with the release of his first single and was featured on several Spotify Editorial playlists. Ariel followed up in March 2021 with ‘Push To Start’ a collaborative single with Pretty Boy Aaron. Finding success in France and Europe, the fresh 90’s inspired R&B track was playlisted by Deezer & more. 

Coming off the heels of a sold out run supporting A-Wall, on the Boy Pablo & Sofiá Valdés ‘Wachito Rico’ Tour, Ariel is gearing up to tour again later this year and is working on his first official EP.
