About

Led by the conga master and a major new voice in Afro-Cuban music, the Pedrito Martinez Group has its roots planted firmly in the Afro-Cuban Rumba tradition and in the bata rhythms and vocal chants of the music of Yoruba and Santeria. Ben Ratliff summed it up aptly for the New York Times calling it "complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk." An extraordinarily tight and creative unit, members include percussionist Jhair Sala from Lima, Peru; electric bassist Alvaro Benavides from Caracas, Venezuela; and keyboard player/vocalist Ariacne Trujillo from Havana, Cuba.

Performance Timing: 75 minutes, with no intermission.
