Event description

Description

Carnegie Hall comes to The Bronx! The Bronx Museum presents in partnership with Carnegie Hall, First Fridays! Carnegie Hall Citywide: The Pedrito Martinez Group at the Bronx Museum.


6:00pm- Kids activity table and gallery tours

7:30pm- Performance begins


Fueled by the driving rhythms of the sacred Cuban batá drum and punctuated by African chants, the music of Pedrito Martinez is “complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk” (The New York Times). Havana-born drummer and singer Martinez and his group play Afro-Cuban music with precision and power, respecting its roots, but always keeping it fresh and progressive. Besides leading his own group, Martinez has played with Paquito D’Rivera, Eddie Palmieri, Edie Brickell, and Sting.
