Pedrito Martinez Group at Guantanamera - photo by Russ Titelman / Jill Nelson.

The gifted Havana-born percussionist Pedrito Martinez launched his career at the tender age of 11, accompanying Cuban heavyweights like Lazaro Ros, Pancho Quinto and pure percussion legends Los Munequitos de Matanzas before making his way to New York in the late 90s. In NYC he joined the acclaimed genre-bashing band Yerba Buena as well as continuing to get top flight sideman work with people like Paquito D'Rivera, Chico O'Farrill, David Murray, Cassandra Wilson, and even Bruce Springsteen among many others.

Pedrito is now stepping out with his own band, and they're off to a great start, landing a prestigious lineup slot at the annual Globalfest World Music festival at Webster Hall, Sunday night January 9th. We're thrilled to have the Pedrito Martinez Group
join us for a pre-Globalfest tune up live in the studio.
