The Afro-Caribbean salsa band Bio Ritmo formed in the early 90s in the unlikely city of Richmond, Va. Since their inception, the band has released four albums, including the critically acclaimed self-titled Bio Ritmo. The Village Voice writes, ?Its a classy mass of pulsating rhythm and wry wordplay on which Bio Ritmo comment on their connection to the musics 70s roots while, you know, swinging relentlessly into the future.?
