The Silvestre Martinez Sextet is celebrating their debut CD, "Heritage," which features the rhythms of the coast of Oaxaca, combined with Afro-Cuban rhythms and Silvestre's unique modern sound. Silvestre Martinez is a multi-percussionist, who grew up playing Chilena, Merequetengue and Charanga inspired Afro-Mexican music as a child. His debut recording brings together some of the finest Bay Area Latin Jazz musicians, plus Grammy-award winning musicians, Antonio Sanchez on drums and Hector Martignon on piano.
