Rhythms of the City, is the beating heart of London’s award winning creative jazz community, the F-IRE Collective. The cream of their 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 our 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. As if that was not enough, Australian Latin specialists Son Veneno guest on 5 tracks, Demus of 2 Banks of 4 mixes. World music right on our doorstep.
