The Pedrito Martinez Group Performs at the Diana Wortham Theatre

April 11, 8 PM at The Diana Wortham Theatre, 2 S. Pack Square in downtown Asheville NC : The Pedrito Martinez Group. Don't miss this one-of-a-kind Afro-Cuban ensemble whose shows have ignited a devoted fan base including Eric Clapton, Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks, and Wynton Marsalis. Some tickets remain for this sizzlin' hot band that The New York Times describes as "…complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk."

The Pedrito Martinez Group in review: "International shipping — Meet the Latin music revitalizers of New York" -Raleigh's INDY Week

"Since arriving in the United States at the end of the 1990s, the Cuban percussionist Pedrito Martinez has been all over the place, putting rumba and guaguanc√≥ into the weave of all kinds of groups. But when his drums, singing and writing are the focus — as is the case in his new band which plays complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk — he’s an incomparable performer." -The New York Times
