PMG set for Vancouver's St. James Hall / The Georgia Straight

Bookmark and Share

Havana-born singer and percussionist Pedrito Martinez, has been based in the United States since 1998. Martinez plays congas, cajón, timbales, and the bata drums (used only in rituals and ceremonies of Santería, the Afro-Cuban religion in which he's a priest), and has contributed to more than 50 albums and worked with the likes of Paul Simon, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, and Paquito D'Rivera. When he comes to Vancouver he'll be leading his crack quartet of musicians from New York's vibrant Latin scene, performing songs from their second album, Habana Dreams. If you love Latin jazz and Cuban rumba, you won't want to miss the Pedrito Martinez Group at St. James Hall this Sunday (April 23).    PHOTO Erika Goldring - Getty Images
