About Pedrito Martinez Group

Cuban-born and New York-based Pedrito Martinez is a master percussionist and an irrepressible bandleader who has recorded or performed with Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Paquito D’Rivera, Bruce Springsteen and Sting, and has contributed as a percussionist and vocalist to over 50 albums. 2016’s Habana Dreams was the #1 Latin Jazz Album in NPR’s Top Jazz Albums for 2016 and was one of the Boston Globe’s picks for best World Music Albums of the year. Pedrito Martinez’s group possesses a rare level of virtuosity, but it never gets in the way of their ability to get a room moving.

“Pedrito is a genius.” — Wynton Marsalis
