Pedro Pablo “Pedrito” Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, Sept 12, 1973. Pedrito’s earliest musical experiences occurred in Havana at the age of 11 with the dancing, singing and percussion playing associated with Cuban rumba. He eventually learned to play the batá, a ceremonial drum with Yoruba origins that is used in Santería rituals to call down the Orishas. He had been awarded the Thelonius Monk Award for Afro-Latin Hand Percussion and is widely regarded as the leading percussionist in Latin music jazz. Pedrito has become the go-to conguero for artists including Eric Clapton, Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen,Chucho Valdez, and Sting, and has contributed, as a percussionist and vocalist, to over 50 albums.
