2am Moskitto Bar
Moskitto Bar was created in Toronto in 2016 around Tangi Ropars, Ahmed Moneka and Yura Rafaliuk while playing music in the woods.
Moskitto Bar is always evolving and changing, looking to explore the music of the world. Every show brings magic with a musical journey across the world from BrIttany to Bagdad, with a few stops in the Balkans and Ukraine. This is music you’ve never heard before.
Moskitto Bar also brings a message of love, hope and compassion with it’s members from all over the world. A true representation of the multiculturalism of Toronto.
