Rhythms of the City, is the beating heart of our collective. The cream of our 70-piece bateria (samba percussion section) is captured here in the studio (as a 15-piece) presenting a fresh mix of the expected and unexpected - funked-up, carnival style. Songs in English, Spanish and Portuguese… why...?

…It is truly a London thing: influences of many rhythmic communities of the capital represented in street sound – funk, reggae, motown anthems, classic sambas and even salsa!

Masterminded and arranged by chief F-IRE architect Barak Schmool, with originals flowing from the UK's godfather of samba / master percussionist Bosco de Oliveira and underground Brit-hop sensation Mystro. World music from our doorstep .

"ROTC, a careering, squeaking in-your-face mix that makes you proud to be a Londoner. Visionary stuff." Jane Cornwell, Songlines Magazine

"It's a stew alright, a fragrant and nourishing one packed with joyful melody and life affirming rhythm, with an authenticity all of its own." Chris May, www.allaboutjazz.com

"There's a celebratory spirit that kicks in at the start and never lets up" worldmusiccentral.org
