Pedrito Martinez band at Guantamera

August 22.

Headed down to 56th st on recommendations to hear a Cuban group play at “Guantanamera” club.

Wow, were we in for a treat!

Pedrito Martinez, check him out on YouTube.

Metric modulations everywhere. This four piece ensemble sounded like an eight piece. All four musicians sang. Four part harmonies. Complex rhythms and changing grooves, a tight ensemble……amazing!

Great hanging with some new and old friends drinking ‘Presidente’ beer from the Dominican Republic.
