Don’t miss the Afro-Cuban jazz percussion band, the Pedrito Martinez Group, at the Folly Theater on Friday, December 13th!
Pedro Pablo “Pedrito” Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, Sept 12, 1973. Having settled in New York City in the fall of 1998, by 2000, he had been awarded the Thelonious Monk Award for Afro-Latin Hand Percussion and featured in the documentary “Calle 54”.
Pedrito’s career as a leader began in 2005 with the formation in NYC of The Pedrito Martinez Group. The group’s Grammy-nominated first album, Pedrito Martinez Group, was released October 2013 and was chosen among NPR’s Favorite Albums of 2013 and The Boston Globe Critics Top Ten Albums of 2013.
