    WBGO Benefit: Latin Jazz Cruise hosted by Maria Hinojosa

    The Pedrito Martinez Group featuring Ariacne Trujillo hosted by Maria Hinojosa
    Wednesday, August 20, 2014
    6pm boarding – Sails 6:30-8:30pm | Spirit Cruise Lines, Pier 61 – Chelsea Piers, NYC


    Every Tuesday evening on WBGO, listeners enjoy Awilda Rivera’s Latin Jazz Cruise. WBGO wanted to bring this show to life with an actual Latin Jazz Cruise featuring one of today’s most exciting performers, Pedrito Martinez. Another familiar voice, heard hosting Latino USA Saturdays at 6am on WBGO, Maria Hinojosa will be the emcee for this dance party on the Hudson River.

    Guests will be certain to move to the beat, as The Pedrito Martinez Group has its roots planted firmly in the Afro-Cuban Rumba tradition and in the bata rhythms and vocal chants of the music of Yoruba and Santeria. Ben Ratliff summed it up aptly for the New York Times calling it, “complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk.” BUY TICKETS HERE.
