When his drums, singing and writing are the focus – as is the case in his new band, which plays complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk – he’s an incomparable performer.” – Ben Ratliff, New York Times

Born and raised in Havana, Cuba, Pedrito Martinez started his musical career at a young age with internationally renowned Cuban folkloric group Munequitos de Matanza. After relocating to New York, Martínez was a founding member of the highly successful, Afro-Cuban/Afro-Beat band Yerba Buena, and has played with the likes of Paquito D’Rivera, Eddie Palmieri, Bebo Valdés, and Sting. Along the way he’s also been featured in the documentary film on Cuban music, Calle 54.

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.
