Rytmi

 Finland

 
Long-running Finnish bimonthly, founded in 1934. Previously a jazz magazine which later also covered a wide variety of popular music from rock & metal to rap & reggae (+ equipment etc). (rojaro)
In the 90s Rytmi was issued 9 times a year. ISSN 1239-1204
Some years, 1992-1995, the magazine was titled Rytmimusiikki.
In the beginning of 2014 Rytmi ceased as a separate printed publication and merged with Soundi. Zappan perikunta (Zappa's heirs) series by Juha Romppanen was published from 1995/1 to 2000/7. Due to longer breaks in publishing the series numbering is not correct. The bass players part from 1999/1 should be 14, not 15 as is printed on it. The parts 17 and 19 have never existed. In total series consisted of 22 parts, all posted here with a help from Juha Romppanen and Heikki Poroila. Juha Romppanen lost all the original manuscripts together with computer in the beginning of 2000s and this here is the only place you can see full series Zappan perikunta.
