ASPEN SANTA FE BALLET

Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s bold vision – top global choreographers, distinctive revolutionary works, and virtuoso dancers – has fostered a jewel of a dance company in the American West. The company’s pioneering spirit arises from a dual set of home cities: Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and Santa Fe, gracing the Southwestern plateau. Now nearly two decades old, the company has been shaping the cultural landscape of these communities and influencing the dance field at large. A European sensibility glossed with American ebullience forges ASFB’s aesthetic, as the company has come to epitomize the contemporary-classical genre.

PEDRITO MARTINEZ GROUP

Fiercely original, the Pedrito Martinez Group combine Afro-Cuban rumba, Santeria’s bata beats, and North American rhythms for a unique and powerful sound. Born in Havana, Cuba, Pedrito Martinez began performing at the age of 11. Having worked as a vocalist and percussionist with Cuban legends such as Tata Güines and legendary folkloric ensemble Los Muñequitos de Matanzas, Martinez’s performance echoes the rich and passionate influences of his youth. Inventive and daring, the Pedrito Martinez Group bring together talent from Cuba, Peru, and Venezuela for what The New York Times described as “complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk.”
