Next time you open rhythmbox go to menu edit → Plugins → rhytmcurse and check it.
After that you can do

where rhythmboxhost is the host where rhythmbox is playing.

Start rhythmbox via ssh
If rhythmbox isn't running, you can start it by ssh:ing to that host and run

  $ env DISPLAY=:0.0 rhythmbox-client

And after that you can telnet to rhythmbox
