“Pedrito is a genius… working with him has been a revelation to me” – Wynton Marsalis
Pedrito Martinez is a world-class Afro-Cuban percussionist and Grammy-nominated singer and bandleader. He has recorded and/or performed with Paul Simon, Paquito D’Rivera, Bruce Springsteen, and Sting and has contributed, as a percussionist and vocalist, to over 50 albums. His group has been lauded as “writing a new chapter in Cuban music history.”
A portion of the proceeds from this performance will be donated to The MusicLink Foundation, a national nonprofit organization that matches music students in need with experienced teachers. This is made possible by a unique partnership between Pedrito’s booking agency (Epstein & Company) and the MusicLink Foundation.
