Two generations of brilliant Cuban musicians come together when Arturo Sandoval and Pedrito Martinez share a double bill at the Berklee Performance Center! Trumpeter Arturo Sandoval is an undisputed legend. A protégé of Dizzy Gillespie, who helped him defect from Cuba, he helped redefine the sound of Cuban jazz as a founding member of Irakere. Percussionist Pedrito Martinez, born in Havana, grew up surrounded by rumba music, and became a specialist in rumba and Afro-Cuban percussion, bringing his folkloric music to partnerships with musicians from around the world.
