Rhythm Rising: formation, principles and values.
Music has been with humans for tens of thousands of years and still has a big role to play in the lives, emotions and aspirations of people. It can express and contribute to our hopes and dreams to build a better future for individuals and the world at large
With that reason in mind Rhythm Rising formed from a previous group of musicians called Yellow Bell in Camden, London in the early 1980s and continues to this day to make a creative contribution towards a bright and hopeful world for the present and generations to come.
Rhythm Rising built a solid reputation as an exciting live band around the thriving Camden and London music scene of the 80's and 90s. They were invited to play London wide and across the whole of the UK and at larger festivals notabley Glastonbury Festival (on a number of occasions), , The Respect Festival, Plymouth Live and SAS festivals in Cornwall. The band recieved UN funding to play at festivals across the .
