Pedrito Martinez - Banlieues Bleues

Next broadcasts Friday, March 5 at 02:15 on Mezzo

    The most popular Cuban percussionist in New York brings a fresh new take on latin jazz.
    For a long time, this drummer-and-singer, brought up on Batá drums and the Santeria cult in Havana, was an ardent sideman with Bruce Springsteen, Meshell Ndegeocello and Sting.
    The following years in residence at a Manhattan restaurant made him the charismatic leader of a fusion quartet.
    Deeply attached to the Afro-cuban dance and Yoruba prayers of his youth, Pedrito Martinez fuses them with the soul, pop and rock sounds of New York.
    A heady Afro-cuban mix.
