“Pedrito is a genius, working with him has been a revelation to me.” – Wynton Marsalis

Pedrito Martinez Group

Havana born and raised, Grammy®-nominated, Pedrito Martinez, has recorded or performed with Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Eddie Palmieri, Bruce Springsteen, and Sting, to name a few and has contributed to over 50 albums. He formed his own group in 2005 and has drawn critical and peer acclaim for his brilliant percussion playing and powerful singing which are both deeply rooted in folkloric, and also highly danceable, Afro-Cuban culture.

Pedrito’s presentation will include primarily original music from Pedrito’s upcoming album, Rompecabezas, (Puzzle) and spans influences from spiritual African threads to jazz and funk.
