Their music is awesome!

Come prepared to get up and dance when the Athenaeum’s jazz program returns to the San Diego studio of the Athenaeum School of the Arts (4441 Park Boulevard) for a San Diego debut performance by leading NYC-based Afro-Cuban percussionist/vocalist Pedrito Martinez, joined by his bandmates Ariacne Trujillo on keyboard and vocals, Alvaro Benavides on electric bass and vocals, and Jhair Sala on percussion and vocals. The Pedrito Martinez Group has emerged as the tightest Afro-Cuban band in New York. Their shows ignite a devoted fan base that has spread to include Eric Clapton, Taj Mahal, Roger Waters, and Wynton Marsalis. The ensemble has its roots planted firmly in the rumba tradition, and revels in the bata rhythms and vocal chants of Yoruban and Santeria music. Among their many fans is guitar legend John Scofield, who commented, “Pedrito and the band are virtuosi of the first order. But even more striking is how they work together as a unit. They are one of the greatest groups playing today. I’ve learned so much from hearing and from playing with them.” The New York Times wrote, “Since arriving in the United States at the end of the 1990s, the Cuban percussionist Martinez has been all over the place, putting rumba and guaguancĂł into the weave of all kinds of groups… when his drums, singing and writing are the focus, he’s an incomparable performer.”
