We were just informed that a grant which we were depending to help fund our European tour did not come through. Whatever contribution you, our fans, can make will help us greatly. Cost for 10 people traveling to Europe at the height of summer is extremely costly.

We've appreciated your support all these years and with your help we hope to continue spreading our music around the world.

Thank you!
Marlysse, Rei, Justin, Bob, Mark, John, Toby, Eddie, Justin and Gabo.

From the beginning, the mission of Bio Ritmo has been the same: to learn from the established traditions of salsa music and its Afro-Caribbean roots, and to write and perform original music that blends the main elements of those traditions with our own influences. The result has been a 23 year trajectory of much work, practice, composing, traveling, learning and collaboration which has rendered a repertoire of over 50 original compositions. Bio Ritmo's music has gained international acclaim and respect from our peers and fans. The support and love we receive continually inspires us to keep going despite challenges and set backs we have encountered over the years. For that we are extremely grateful.


However, the path of artists who fight to pioneer within their craft and forge their own individual style is not usually one of commercial viability. In the world of music this is especially true, as the masses mostly prefer and invest in the material that is put forth by the strong marketing of the big music labels, and the radio stations that purvey their product. It is a difficult battle for new and original music to be heard and understood, and we want our message to shine.


The highlight of each of these last four years has been performing in Europe. Every show has been great and inspiring. However, the clubs and festivals for which we perform, although very eager to have us, cannot pay us enough to cover the immense cost of a ten-member orchestra traveling from the USA. Added to this is the expense of having just recorded a new album. We are very proud and excited about this newest recording, and can't wait to be able to present it to the rest of the world and to tour in support of its release.


The work and love that we put into this orchestra is sincere and we've always delivered the finest our greatest efforts can offer. Our plea to our fans and anyone who would invest in an established artist's project is just that: to invest in our endeavor. We ask you to help a project being made with love and soul.


With our deepest gratitude, we thank you for your support. ¡Mil gracias!


Respectfully yours,
Bio Ritmo.
