On this week's WCVE - Richmond VA - World Music Show, we'll check out a new CD from the Pedrito Martinez Group, who's Latin fusion sounds include a duet with actor/musician Ruben Blades. The Pedrito Martinez Group is a Cuban band out of New York who's new CD is called Habana Dreams. The first thing that struck me about this group is that their new CD features a bunch of collaborations with musicians including Wynton Marsalis, Issac Delgado and as mentioned, Ruben Blades. And it was the Ruben Bladesnumbers that struck me the most. Blades, in case you only know him from his recent stint on the AMC "Walking Dead" spin-off "Fear the Walking Dead," is a long-time accomplished musician and actor. And in the few tracks he's on, he shows flexes his musical chops. On this CD, the band embraces Pedrito's family in Cuba--literally. Due to the recent travels restrictions that were lifted, he was able to travel there and record with his family, who also happen to be some talented musicians as well. Off this CD, we'll check out the songs "Antadilla," which features Blades and Marsalis, and the song "Encantamiento Yoruba," which features Roman Diaz.
