A star in his native Cuba, Pedrito Martinez toured the world with the Yerba Buena band now collects acclaim heading up his own foursome. The award-winning percussionist tears it up on congas and bongos; his unique style a hybrid of his Afro-Cuban and New York influences. Combined with bold vocals and positive messages, it’s no wonder Pedrito’s music has caught the ear of audiences and artists including Wynton Marsalis who said, “Pedrito is a genius…working with him has been a revelation to me.”

“Pedrito Martinez is undeniably one of the most talented young musicians in Latin music today.” - AllAboutJazz.com
