Rhythmos profile

Rhythmos – Three of NYC’s most eccentric and influential groove outlaws join forces to converse in “percussionese.”


Amir Ziv, Cyro Baptista, and Billy Martin have previously collaborated in each other’s bands and have now created their own unique environment for further musical dialog. Their performances are a thrilling spectacle, enhanced by live film scoring to original motion picture creations by Billy Martin. The group uses their voices and instruments from around the world, including the kitchen sink!
