Rio En Medio's debut album, The Bride of Dynamite is an intricate collage of layered vocals, delicately plucked ukulele, ghostly samples and gritty, deconstructed electronics. It features texts lifted from sources as disparate as William Blake, Paul Eluard, John Ashbery and a 1920s Baghdad travelogue. The songwriting is rarely autobiographical, yet it maintains a very personal tone.  In the words of Danielle Stech Homsy (the artist behind Rio En Medio), it is "music that wants to listen as much as be heard." Special touches were contributed to some tunes by Andy Cabic (Vetiver), Sierra Casady (Coco Rosie), Tim Fite and David Coulter, among others.  Over the past year, Homsy has performed and recorded with a variety of prominent artists, among whom are Vashti Bunyan, Devendra Banhart, Tarantula A.D., Larry Yes and The Art of Flying, Fite, CocoRosie, and Vetiver. She performs regularly in New York, where she lives, and recently appeared at England's All Tomorrow's Parties festival. Now, armed with her baritone uke and a faithful team of instrumentalists, she is preparing to storm the globe.
