Peace & Rhythm are proud to announce the release of Richmond, Virginia-based salsa orchestra Bio Ritmo’s self-titled 2002 album, first time on vinyl (double LP), remastered from the original tapes, with three bonus unreleased live tracks and download card. The so-called “Green Album” has received a facelift for its vinyl debut, with a remix of the artwork and an interior gatefold spread chock-full of band memorabilia from the era. What’s more, the original album tracks have been properly mastered from the reel-to-reel tapes for the first time, and the added live recordings give fans a taste of what it was like to hear tunes from the album performed on stage back in the day.
Bio Ritmo are known as pioneers of the indie-salsa music revival, and this visionary album is the one that kicked the band into high gear in the second chapter of their career. Though inspired by classic salsa dura artists of the seventies, Bio Ritmo have created their own unique sound, some say “experimental” for their mixing of influences not commonly found in salsa music.
