They got Rhythm

It's only fair to declare a bias towards the Rich Rhythms crew (pictured above) who a couple of years ago responded to my call for artists for a Tsunami relief artshow. On the opening night they blew away the assembled throng with their West African style drumming; a combination of perfect timing, incredible syncopation and dodgy trousers.
Led by charismatic charmer Richard Latham, who looks half krishna devotee and half euro gangster, they do more than stunning performances. They do a mean line in workshops, offer one to one tuition as well as drum services including tuning and re-skinning.
If you're looking for a bright but different performance, or would like to learn how to beat the skins properly look no further.
