Pedrito Martínez and Alfredo Rodriguez Duo

Two of Cuba's greatest young musical masters will come together in an incendiary duo performance. Pedrito Martínez (b. 1973) is the winner of the Thelonious Monk competition in percussion and Alfredo Rodriguez (b. 1985) has quickly emerged as one of the finest Cuban jazz pianists after being "discovered" by legendary producer Quincy Jones. Martínez' fame spread initially due to his work with the folkloric ensemble, Los Muñequitos de Matanzas, which led to work with Jane Bunnett's Spirit of Havana in 1998. Since then he has become one of the most highly regarded Afro-Cuban percussionists in the world. Pianist Rodriguez attended three music conservatories in Cuba, winning classical piano competitions in each. After performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2016, he was invited by Quincy Jones to collaborate on a project that was presented at the Shanghai World Expo. These two Grammy-nominated artists first worked together on Rodriquez' 2012 release Invasion Parade. Since that initial session they have had the rare arrangement of performing together as a duo, leaving audiences completely mesmerized by their fearless and virtuosic playing.
