Come and learn from master percussionist Pedrito Martínez and his band members in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!  Pedrito Martínez will conduct an on-stage lecture and demonstration on Afro-Cuban music, discussing the Yoruba traditions that he draws from, the batá rhythms, the chants, and the roots of who he is as a musician. He and band members will demonstrate, on batá drums and on congas, how they transpose and reinterpret these rhythms in the context of the music. 

The Pedrito Martínez Group will perform Sunday, October 18, 7:30pm at The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts.  For tickets, call the Ordway at 651.224.4222 or visit
