About Bio Ritmo:
Bio Ritmo is recognized around the world as one of the most intriguing and influential indie “salsa dura” orchestras of the last three decades. Their music is rooted in Afro-Caribbean rhythms mixed with retro big-band jazz, a little funk, and all things 1970s. The 10-piece powerhouse began in 1991 as an experimental percussion ensemble that grew out of the diverse local music scene of Richmond, VA, which also gave birth to GWAR, Honor Role, Sparklehorse, and Lamb of God, among many others. Bio Ritmo has received global acclaim, with critics heralding them as “Latin music visionaries” and “one of the most innovative salsa bands of the 21st century.” For more, we suggest scoping out Bio Ritmo’s NPR Tiny Desk from 2014, and following the group on Instagram and Facebook. In 2022 the band is commemorating its 30-year anniversary with a series of concerts on the East Coast and vinyl reissues from their expansive catalog on Merge Records, Electric Cowbell, and Peace and Rhythm.
