Bio Ritmo

by Bio Ritmo

"CLASSIC SALSA WITH A TWIST." Bio Ritmo's music evokes the simplicity and freedom of classic Nuyorican Salsa. Flavored with bomba, samba, charanga, and even a bolero, the record treats the listener as well as the dancer with its thought provoking lyrics.

Album Notes
Highly Recommended!

Editor's Pick. Terrific old-school salsa -- with trumpets *and* trombones -- and plenty of sabor and verve.

Some tracks are in the style of, say, Eddie Palmieri's La Perfecta, or Conjunto Libre where a simple coro phrase is often used as the basis for extended jams. "Atrevete" is a good example of that, and it's one of the best tracks on the CD. "Fabula," an unusual number, borrows from both Caribbean and South American sensibilities (is that also joropa? Brazilian?)and injecting it with a bit of techno-house flair. By far, the most modern track here (and featuring the electro-duck), and it would be interesting if they pushed further in this direction in their next release.
"Para Los Romperos" is a blow-out mambo-jazz like dance number might have been a hit at the Palladium.

Helen Stathakis

the best salsa band of our generation!
This cd is magnificent. The sound quality makes you think you're in a hot latin american club in your own home. The diversity each member brings to the group comes together in una mezcla of livelihood and passion!

Dj Rojo

Bio Ritmo is on fire
The songs and the production are great. A pure sound that reminds me of the classic seventies salsa. I like the way salsa is mixed with for instance samba. Great for listening and dancing. Atrevate is an instant hit on the dancefloor.

Felix Padilla a.k.a. DJ Dichoso

Nothing but bliss
I must first make this disclaimer. Unless you have seen Bio Ritmo live, you will never know how good they really are!
I've seen Bio Ritmo live several times and I think this is by far their best outing. Everybody does a good job and that Salsa Classica sound is banging. My favorite tracks on this CD are La Jamaca, Atrevete, y Hermano. My only complaint is that the songs are two short! (actually its not really a complaint, I just love the groves these guys set up and I don't want them to end!) Anyway - if you are a fan of Salsa, or if you just love good music. Do yourself a favor and pick up this CD.

Good Classic Salsa!!
Good Salsa, Makes you wanna dance!! A blend of that New Yorican Salsa!!! Good arrangements, good bass and piano licks!! Good percussion performance!! A good salsa cd for the classic salsa lovers. The band is good and so is the music! The mixdown & mastering aspect of this production is ok, not the commerical process but it sounds good. It sounds like a live CD!! Overall review...Good CD, Good Music!!!

Donna Jacobs

Another great CD from one of my favorite groups
This CD is a must have for the salsa fans of the world. It will liven up every party, just as all the Bio Ritmo CDS have.

Marie Franz

As brilliant as 'A Love Supreme': genius and the Great heart
Where? New York, Puerto Rico,Cuba, Brazil, England...? I listen and my whole body is responding: My heart, My center, My great grief, My love, My falters And, the Great Grace...I find it all here, in this soulful journey...if I could take the band in my arms in thanks, but in retrospect, how could such brilliance not find each other? Love. Go for it.

Neson A. Donquis

A cork screw for sadness but el "Rayito" puts the perfect blue.
Plenty of rhythm and good musicallity, It reminds me of Ruben B. and Willie C. at times. The lirics with the exeption of el matapato, are profound and poetical.
There is no way you can not identify with the songs if you are out there making every day count. Pure reality and lots of heart.

Mahajohn the Mujahideen

Divine Mystical Light!
This CD is the supreme creation of all time, the creative zenith of all existence. Long after our universe has died and expanded into nothingness, this CD shall remain eternally present and perfect. It is the alpha and omega. The first and the last. The alif and the ya, the lift and the falling away.

Sylvia Pfeiffenberger, The Independent Weekly

Old School Salsa for a New Generation
Unlike any of their previous albums, except in some ways 'Que Siga La Musica,' which also featured some cuts with Rei Alvarez' thoughtful lyrics and soulful vocals. The new album is like a time machine taking you back to Eddie Palmieri's New York in the 1960s and Sonora Poncena's Puerto Rico in the 1970s. Wall-to-wall originals like 'El Monte,' 'Atrevete' and 'Para Los Romperos' prove that Bio Ritmo has been to the mountaintop, and returned with nothing less than a vision for the future of salsa.


This is salsa to the core!
Wow! I was blown away by this intense album. Bio Ritmo really knows the true meaning of salsa music. They go back to the roots, but keep it alive and new at the same time. The rhythm is hypnotic and tight making me want to listen to it over and over again!
