Here we could start a discussion about rhythm versus pulse. I'd say 
every pulse is a rhythm, but not every rhythm has a pulse. Thus it 
remains rhythmical...

Any music has a rhythm I'd call it the sense of time, the way we 
perceive that a musical event has its correct time. Even my definition 
of groove would include that.
If you ever listened to good free jazz drummers, I'd say they play a 
groove without a pulse...
