Over the past decade, pianist Alfredo Rodríguez went from a young local Cuban artist, to being discovered by Quincy Jones, to becoming a globally recognized Grammy®-nominee with three critically acclaimed albums to his name.

Also helping to expose the rich musical history of Cuba to a wider audience, Pedrito Martinez has recorded or performed with Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen and Sting, among others. As a founding member of the highly successful Afro-Cuban/Afro-Beat band, Yerba Buena, Pedrito was named “Percussionist of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association three years in a row. Together, these two artists are leading the new wave of Cuban jazz music – with a seductive, buoyant, powerful sound that will leave you wanting more.
