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

“The Pedrito Martinez Group is writing a new chapter in Cuban music history” – NPR

Cuban-born and New York-based Pedrito Martinez is a master percussionist and an irrepressible bandleader. He has recorded or performed with such artists as Eddie Palmieri, Paul Simon, and Paquito D’Rivera, and his own group has become an essential voice in the evolving tradition of Afro-Cuban music and jazz. Though the group possesses a rare level of virtuosity, it never gets in the way of their ability to get a room moving. Martinez is also a member of the extremely popular and frequently sold-out Nuevo Jazz Latino program at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Don’t miss this rare Dizzy’s Club appearance by Martinez’ own group!
