Global A Go-Go presents:

When you think of Richmond’s most famous musical exports, what comes to mind? Maybe Jimmy Dean the sausage king? Or possibly jazz legends like Lonnie Liston Smith and James “Plunky” Branch? Probably Richmond’s punk and metal scene: Lamb of God, Avail, Municipal Waste, Strike Anywhere and of course Gwar.

Well, if you’re in Colombia, the correct answer by a mile is Bio Ritmo, Richmond’s salsa machine and one of the top salsa bands anywhere in the world. Gwar may have opened their own bar in Richmond, but Bio Ritmo actually has a bar named for them in Cali, Colombia!

Bio Ritmo is celebrating 30 years of “more sabor” with a special event next Sunday afternoon, October 23, at Hardywood’s Richmond taproom, with emeritus members Jorge Negrón, Gabo Tomasini and Jim Thomson jetting in from Puerto Rico, New York and DC, respectively, to sit in. Global A Go-Go will get you warmed up for the event with a set of Bio Ritmo music on this week’s program.

Also this week (Sunday October 16, 1:00-3:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards on the wrir.org archive player, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site): new music from Benin’s all female (ages 12-18 to boot) Star Feminine Band, Derya Yıldırım’s Anatolian rock, Kabyle folk by Hamsi Boubeker, French rockers La Femme go Brazilian, and even more sabor from Spain’s El Combo Batanga.
