A couple more "extra dark" videos (hey, think of them like that spicy, bittersweet chocolate with hot peppers and 90% cacao) that I made of Bio Ritmo's new, as yet unreleased songs in January.
These performances were recorded in the back room at Balliceaux, 203. N. Lombardy Street in downtown Richmond, where track lighting would do wonders for ham videographers.
Newbies in the repertoire "Majadero" and "La Verdad" have hallmarks of the classic Bio Ritmo sound, as I listen and get to know them. You only get to do this once: hear a Bio Ritmo song for the first time that will mature in your ears and evolve in performance.
FYI: This no-cover, backroom salsa night ("omg, what? you are telling me they hear Bio Ritmo FREE in Richmond once a month?" Sí.) happens again this Tuesday (2/23), 10 pm - 1 am. Restless, my booties just may hit the road.
