Pedrito Martinez: Afro-Cuban rumba

Outpost Performance Space hosts Yerba Buena member and all-around excellent percussionist Pedrito Martinez for an evening of Afro-Cuban music. Martinez performs with a multinational ensemble called the Pedrito Martinez Group. The group includes Peruvian drummer Jhair Salas, Venezuelan bassist Alvaro Benavides and Cuban keyboardist Ariacne Trujillo. Pedrito’s current Nueva York residency has resulted in heaps of hybridization and garnered rave reviews from such divergent artists as Steve Gadd and Taj Mahal. Although the current combo still bases much of their work on rumba and bata rhythms—entwined with vocalizations derived from the practice of Yoruba Santeria—they've also been influenced by funk; Old Gregg would heartily recommend this shouldn't-miss concert. Plus, you can dance to this stuff, which beats drinking Bailey’s and doing watercolors any day of the week. So, tonight at 7:30pm, strut over to Outpost (210 Yale SE). Tickets to the all-ages concert range from 15 to 20 clams. Groovy, man. Outpost Performance Space • Thu Dec 5 • 7:30pm • $20 • View on Alibi calendar
