3D Rhythm of Life, a LATIN-TROPICAL-SOUL band founded by drummer/leader Michael Tate and guitarist Chris Amelar, has created a unique style that blends Funky Latin Pop, Island Grooves and Rhythm and Blues.

Multicultural and bilingual, this remarkable group from New York City has produced 6 records and performed throughout the tri-state area for well over a decade. Diverse, Dynamic and Danceable is the band’s musical signature.

Members of 3D Rhythm of Life have shared the stage and worked with the likes of Marc Anthony, Whitney Houston, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Jennifer Lopez and many more.

3D Rhythm of Life is a musical experience that respects the traditions of the past while creating the sounds of the future.

Michael Tate’s experience playing with the renowned international music group, Kid Creole and The Coconuts, provided an excellent opportunity to perform and appreciate many styles such as Funk, Disco, Latin Tropical, Latin Jazz, Island and Big Band Swing.

The group’s members have also shared the stages with an array of musical luminaries. Cofounder and guitarist Chris Amelar is a William Patterson University graduate and a well respected teacher/author. Keyboardist Lenny Underwood, has recorded and performed with chart topping artists Mariah Carey and Chaka Khan.

The band’s new album “Fantasy”, leads with a vibrant Latin-Tropical-Soul cover of Earth Wind and Fire’s international mega-hit “Fantasy”, sung by Nuyorican vocalist, Chris Alfinez, who has toured with Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez and La India. The music video was released in 2016, a few days prior to the passing of the dynamic founder of EWF, Maurice White. 3D Rhythm of Life is the first group to present a tribute to Earth Wind and Fire.

The sorcery of “Spell on You” sung by celebrated Trinidadian musician Bonny Bonaparte (Bruce Hornsby, Spyra Gyra) elevates the groove with brilliant Reggae vibes. He also lends his Island stylings to the politically charged “Things Will Change”. The EDM Latin dance mixes, “Que Siga La Rumba” and “Oyelo” are fueled by the energy of renowned Latin GRAMMY AWARD winning singer Herman Olivera. “Quiero Saber”, the second single sung by Chris Alfinez, is heartfelt, romantic pop Salsa track.

“Fantasy” by 3D Rhythm of Life is available for purchase on all major music platforms and is currently in radio rotation. Follow 3D Rhythm of Life on Instagram @3Drhythmoflife. Enjoy the video for Fantasy on You Tube with over 1 Million views!
