Moskitto Bar is a fresh and unique sound created in the multi-cultural hub of Toronto, Canada. Their sound combines a beautiful and original mix of Ukrainian, Balkan, Iraqi Middle-Eastern and French Celtic music. The project was initiated by Tangi Ropars when he met newcomers Yura, from Ukraine, and Ahmed, from Iraq. In June 2016, during a gathering in Northern Ontario, they met every day in the woods to share and teach each other their respective melodies and rhythms. As they were playing, the rural Ontario mosquitos, were joyfully feasting on the multicultural group inspiring their eponymous name.
Almost two years later, the trio connected with the notable violin player, Fethi Nadjem freshly landed for Algeria, adding his oriental flavour to the sound mix.
More than the music, despite their diverse traditions, political and social stories, they share a deeper connection, a mutual love and respect for each other and a common desire to spread messages of unity. “Connecting Cultures For a Better Future” Moskitto Bar

Duo for Violin and Cello – Jessie Montgomery
Amaro Drom (Tangos Flamencos) – Yardani Torres Maiani
Passacaglia – Handel-Halvorsen
Passionate about music education, the duo has presented concerts and workshops to elementary and high schools in Southern Ontario, and each maintains an active private teaching studio, online and in person. The Tadioli Duo are frequent performers on the Chamber Music Mississauga roster, performing concerts both in person and virtually since the duo’s inception. With a goal of bringing classical music to non-conventional spaces and new audiences, the duo gave their debut concert on board a pirate ship sailing in Toronto Harbour in 2018, and brought live music to the home gardens of music lovers throughout the summers of 2020 and 2021.
In 2020, both were invited to join Solidaridad Tango Orquesta, and are studying virtually with master musicians from Buenos Aires’ famed Orquesta Escuela de Tango Emilio Balcarce. Drawing on musical inspiration from their own backgrounds as well as those of their colleagues and collaborators, the duo is committed to further fostering a love of music in the communities they engage with, and broadening the range and depth of what classical performance means in today’s society.
