The Launch

The 2013 Respect Festival launch took place this year at the Roland Levinsky Building at Plymouth University.

Heralding this exciting event, we had the band Rhythms of the City performing: the UK's premier samba percussion squad, performing not only authentic carnival samba, but many other funky styles (salsa, soca, reggae, funk, hiphop) with the same passion and energy. 

Rhythms of the City is the beating heart of London's multi-award winning jazz community the F-IRE Collective - look out for them at this year's Respect Festival
