Pedrito was a founding member of the highly successful, Afro-Cuban/Afro-Beat band, Yerba Buena, with which he recorded two albums and toured the world. He has received the Thelonius Monk Award, Sphinx Award for Excellence and been named “Percussionist of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association every year from 2014-2017.
His career as a leader began in 2005 with the formation in NYC of The Pedrito Martinez Group whose performances have included festivals, performing arts centers, and venues throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Latin America.
The group’s self-titled first album (released by Motema Music), was released October, 2013, was nominated for Grammy, and was chosen among NPR’s Favorite Albums of 2013 and The Boston Globe Critics Top Ten Albums of 2013.
Habana Dreams (Motema Music), their second album, was released in June 10, 2016. Guests include Ruben Blades, Isaac Delgado, Wynton Marsalis, and Angelique Kidjo. Accolades have included #1 Latin Jazz Album in the NPR Critics Top Jazz Albums for 2016. Wall Street Journal: “…the thrill of real Cuban rumba transformed into something as hip and irresistible as great pop.”
