Ritmo With Rose is a monthly dose of musical flavours and blends from around the world, which delves into the stories and storytellers that music has documented over time.

It encourages us to become more conscious and curious about music and the stories it tells about the world we live in, showcasing music that is culturally and linguistically diverse and shining a light on communities and creatives that tend to lie outside the collective consciousness. Rose aims to normalise listening to music in different languages, without overlooking the messages and cultural contexts that lie within it.

Rose was born in the UK but raised in Spain for her entire childhood, instilling in her an interest in language and music as a connecting force, and a love of music from around the world. She believes in music as a force for tolerance, education and change.

Rose glides us through another 60 minutes of global tunes, this time sharing eclectic sounds from Iceland to Alaska!
