Event

Miguel Martinez & Corazonsur
Corazón Sur's director, Miguel Martínez, has brought together the innovative sounds of Latin jazz and traditional Cuban and Mexican son with the distinctive jarocho style of Veracruz, and formed a collaboration with some of the best musicians in the Bay Area - Carlos Caro (Cuba), Saul Sierra (Mexico), Jose Roberto Hernandez (Mexico), Marco Diaz (USA) - to produce an evening filled with original compositions and musical arrangements that promise to create a coastal ambiance, inspired by the scents and breezes of the Caribbean.

"Del Corazón al Son" CD pays tribute to the tercera raíz, the sometimes less obvious but widespread presence of the African culture in Mexico.
"Del Corazon al Son" is the result of the Cuban Son, Son Jarocho and jazz, which together make it an evening of tastes and smells of the Caribbean. Miguel Martinez & CorazonSur pay tribute to these three shores of america: Veracruz (Mexico) - Havana (Cuba) - New Orleans (USA).

"Martinez has built chops that move across several different contexts as composer, flute player and producer." The latin Jazz Corner.

Born in Chiapas, Mexico, Miguelito Martinez studied Music Education and Transversal Flute from the University of Science and Art in Chiapas and La Universidad Veracruzana and trained in Kodaly and Orff.  Martinez is the founding director of Corazon Sur, a Mexican-Caribbean fusion ensemble, and co-director of Balamcoatl, a collaborative project focused on diffusing the rich music and dance traditions of the indigenous people of Mexico.

A top-notch musician, Martinez stays busy in the San Francisco Bay Area Latin music scene, playing salsa with percussionists Karl Perazzo and Michael Spiro in Conjunto Karabali, El Sonero del Uruguay "Edgardo Cambon", and Tito y su Son de Cuba, Latin Jazz and much more. He has performed and recorded with Alfredo de la Fe, Orestes Vilato, Karl Perazzo, Juan Carlos Formel, Michael Spiro, Orlando Maraca Valle, Felix Valoy, Ralph Irizarry, Little Johnny Rivero, Ramon Gutierrez from Son de Madera and many more.

In 2009 he was selected by the Milagro Foundation to be on the Voces del Cambio show on the Discovery Channel in which he shared his insight on how to utilize music as an instrument for newcomer children from Latin America to help them integrate into their new community.  In the same year he was granted the best Latin Jazz Flautist Of The Year for the Latin Jazz Corner. Martinez was the composer for the Youth in Arts first World Premiere production based on Elisa Kleven's popular Paper Princess book series supported in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the San Francisco Foundation.  Besides his busy carreer as a performer, Martinez has been a music teacher and multicultural arts educator since 2004 for Youth in Arts.
