Performance follows Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District
PITTSBURGH, PA: There is no other Salsa band quite like Bio Ritmo. Recognized as a leader of the “new ‘old school’” Salsa movement, Bio Ritmo will make a rare Pittsburgh appearance as part of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Salsa Fridays on Friday, April 29, 10:30 p.m. at the Trust’s Cabaret at Theater Square. The performance by Bio Ritmo follows the Trust’s Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District.
Bio Ritmo attracts a far-reaching listening audience while earning the respect and admiration of traditional Latin music aficionados. The band fuses Salsa Dura, Afro-Latin and Funk with a touch of Samba, Arabic and Afro-Beat, and is leading a renewed global interest in the raw, experimental 70's style Salsa sound. Besides their collective appreciation and understanding of Afro-Latin music, Bio Ritmo's members come from an eclectic mix of musical backgrounds contributing to the band's fresh, unique and soulful sound. Bio Ritmo is one of the few Salsa bands successfully pushing the boundaries of Latino music while preserving its rich musical heritage.
