Smart lyrics and funky beats topped with her remarkable vocal gifts are hallmarks of her most recent album, Wonderbloom, a record that Jazz Magazine described as “sophisticated and sensual pop” and  The Mail on Sunday as “Glamorous… semi-electric pop Prince might approve of”.

Alfredo Rodríguez & Pedrito Martinez

Grammy-nominated artists Alfredo Rodríguez and Pedrito Martinez first worked together on Rodríguez’s 2012 release Invasion Parade. Since that initial recording session, they have had the rare occasion to perform together as a duo, leaving audiences completely mesmerized by their fearless and virtuosic playing. Each artist brings a different approach to the collaboration. Rodríguez was schooled in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana, and his piano playing is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as it is by his Afro Cuban and jazz roots. Percussionist Martinez’s musical training came directly from the streets of the Cayo Hueso neighborhood of Old Havana in which he was raised.
