Celebrity Artist Series

World-class conga player, singer and bandleader based in New York City, Cuban-born Martinez began his musical career at the age of 11 performing as a vocalist and percussionist. In 2000 he won first place, when the Thelonious Monk Institute showcased competition in Afro-Latin hand drumming for the first time ever.

His sound, featured on more than one hundred albums in collaborations with Sting, Paul Simon, Wynton Marsalis, and numerous other artists, will fill K.S. Gross Auditorium.

There will even be room for dancing!
