Neighborhood Concert: The Pedrito Martinez Group

Jamaica Performing Arts Center
Fueled by driving rhythms of the sacred Cuban batá drum and punctuated by African chants, The New York Times calls the music of Pedrito Martinez “complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk.” Havana-born drummer and singer Martinez and his group play Afro-Cuban music with precision and power, respecting its roots, but always keeping it fresh and progressive. Besides leading his own group, Martinez has played with Paquito D’Rivera, Eddie Palmieri, Edie Brickell, and Sting.
