About Vintage Vinyl "Ritmos Raros"
Ritmos Raros is a moving but never ending nostalgic tropical vinyl dancefloor party dedicated to the rare and normally unheard rhythms of Africa, Latin America, India, Caribbean, Brazilian, and the Arab variety. Touching upon the many genres we get together and try our very best to dance to different rhythms of each other culture. We are looking for members who love dancing and learning about obscure music that may have not achieved popularity to due to a myriad of adverse circumstances. Join us if your interested in being exposed to sounds you might not hear otherwise outside of the countries of origin. Expect the unexpected: Hybrid transactions, unlikely collaborations / combinations, moods in a minor key, blood, sweat, and tears all wrapped up in its aural form strictly for your educational and spiritual enrichment.
Vintage Vinyl / Ritmos Raros is the official party of Afro Ritmo Records.
