Latin salsa group Bio Ritmo is back with a new album called “Puerta Del Sur,” which is coming out on June 24. The 10-piece band will be presenting it live on Friday, May 30 at The Camel and presenting the full album release party on Sunday, June 29 at The Broadberry.
The title of the record, “Puerta del Sur,” which translates to “Door to the South,” addresses Bio Ritmo’s unique and seemingly incongruous placement in the locale of Richmond, Virginia. It’s a cosmic coincidence that has nurtured the group for its entire career. This album has the most varied musical content to date. Each song taking its listener on a different journey through Afro-Cuban (and other) rhythms mixed with intriguing harmonic movements blended with vintage keyboard sounds, analog synthesizer surprises and sophisticated, stylized horn arrangements.
