We are proud to welcome percussionist Pedrito Martínez back to the Modlin Center along with pianist Alfredo Rodríguez. Both GRAMMY® Award-nominated artists first worked together on Rodríguez’s 2012 release Invasion Parade. Rodríguez, who was trained in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana, Cuba, is a protégé of Quincy Jones, who took him under his wing when he defected to the United States in 2009. His riveting artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as it is by his Afro Cuban and jazz roots. Martínez’s musical training came directly from the streets of his childhood neighborhood, Cayo Hueso in Old Havana, and he has subsequently performed with artists such as Sting, Paul Simon, and Wynton Marsalis.  

Artist Voices  Arrive at 6:30 PM for a pre-performance discussion with Alfredo Rodríguez and Pedrito Martínez, led by VPM Music jazz host Peter Solomon.
