“… All electricity, charisma, exuberance (and) astonishing skill”

Grammy-nominated Cuban music sensation Pedrito Martinez brings his virtuosic artistry and band for an evening of rhythm at the highest level of mastery. The Havana-born, NYC-based percussionist, bandleader and vocalist has become the go-to conguero for artists including Paul Simon, Wynton Marsalis and Sting, and his band is “as thrilling an Afro-Cuban unit as any working today” (Jazz Times).
