    ¡Ritmo Latino! featuring Pedrito Martinez Group

    Don't miss this Grammy-award winning band!  Recognized as the leader of the Afro-Cuban sound, with their roots planted firmly in the rumba tradition, the Pedrito Martinez Group revels in the Bata rhythyms and vocal chants of Yoruban and Saterian music.

    Members of the Group include Jhair Sala from Lima Peru; electric bassist Alvaro Benavides from Caracas, Venezuela; and keyboard player and vocalist Araicne Trijillo from Havana, Cuba.  Born in Havana, Pedro ""Pedrito" Martinez began his career at 11, performing with such Cuban legens as Tata Guines and Munequitos de Matanzas.

    This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
