Heineken TransAtlantic Festival 2011 - NIGHT 2: A double bill featuring Quantic and Pedrito Martinez Group.
Quantic is an umbrella name for UK-born, Colombia-based Will Holland’s projects. Quantic is an acclaimed producer, musician and DJ, evolving through styles like funk and jazz to electronic, latin, reggae and dub. The sound system he will bring to the Bandshell features cumbia singer Nidia Gongora. Her beautiful voice is a featured part of his Cali-based Combo Barbaro – the soul of Colombian cumbia. Quantic is currently working in Medellin on Ondatropica, a collaboration with Frente Cumbiero that brings together the old guard and the coolest young musicians of Colombian music. http://www.quantic.org
Percussionist Pedrito Martinez’s Afro-Cuban quartet makes a much anticipated Florida debut on Saturday April 14th. The New York Times review called his sound “complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk.” Miami audiences will recognize the base in Cuban guanguancó and classic rumba, and the bata rhythms of santeria. As a young musician in Havana, Pedrito was a member of the legendary rumba group Los Munequitos de Matanzas. Based in New York since 1998, he was a founding member of the groundbreaking AfroLatino supergroup Yerba Buena. With his own quartet, he can now work with some of the city’s top Latin musicians, and bring his AfroCuban roots into new realms. http://www.pedritomartinezmusic.com
