To commemorate the salsa group’s 30-year anniversary, Merge and Electric Cowbell Records are reissuing Bio Ritmo's 7-inch single “Piragüero” b/w “Asia Minor”, originally released on Merge in 1996. A-side "Piragüero" is an original track that features the soaring, soulful vocals of Rei Alvarez. The flipside is a mambo classic from the ‘50s popularized by the great Cuban bandleader Machito, whom Bio Ritmo regarded as a major influence in its conception. This record is a snapshot of the raw essence of Bio Ritmo in its early years that laid the foundation for the band’s evolution and endurance.
All physical formats include a download.
