Pedrito Martinez & Alfredo Rodriguez

March 14 @ 7:00 pm

Grammy-nominated artists Pedrito Martinez & Alfredo Rodriguez first worked together on Rodriguez’s 2012 release Invasion Parade. Since that initial recording session, they have gone on to perform together onstage as a duo, leaving audiences completely mesmerized by their fearless and virtuosic playing. Each artist brings a different approach to the collaboration. A protégé of Quincy Jones, Rodriguez was schooled in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana and his artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravisnky as it is by his Cuban and jazz roots. Martinez’s musical training came directly from the streets of the Cayo Hueso neighborhood in Old Havana and has subsequently performed with artists such as Sting, Paul Simon, and Wynton Marsalis. Together, these two master musicians take listeners on a unique and exciting journey.
