Richmond, Virgina – based salsa veterans Bio Ritmo announced the release of their upcoming album, Puerta Del Sur. Their first since 2011’s La Verdad will be available June 24 via Vampisoul Records. The album will be available in both digital and physical formats, including a very limited run of 12′ vinyls that will include personalized signatures from all members of Bio Ritmo plus a bonus sticker and promotional “salsa revolution” full color postcard.
Fronted by singer and composer Rei Alvarez, Bio Ritmo is an eight to ten member ensemble known for a fusing the vintage Fania sound of old with modern harmonic movements, vintage keyboard sounds, analog synthesizer surprises and sophisticated, stylized horn arrangements. They formed in 1991 in Virginia’s college band scene and have since gone on to release multiple studio albums both independently and via various record labels.
