Silvestre Martinez at Blue Note

Silvestre Martinez was born in Puerto Angel, Oaxaca, Mexico. He grew up in a large family of musicians, who played chilena, merequetengue and charanga music, which is Afro-Mexican music from the coast.

In 1999, Silvestre was invited to live and perform in Bali, Indonesia, where he played salsa, Latin jazz and world music. Silvestre continued to travel and perform in various countries in Europe and Asia. Once Silvestre returned to Mexico, he traveled to Cuba to deepen his understanding of the roots of Afro-Cuban music. Silvestre’s ultimate dream was to play percussion in the United States, and his dream became realized when he moved to the Bay Area in 2002 and began performing with legendary Latin jazz musicians.

Silvestre Martinez debuts his new Latin jazz project with his album, Vengo de la CostaThe rhythms of the coast of Oaxaca, combined with Jazz and Silvestre’s unique, modern Latin jazz sound makes Vengo de la Costa a truly an exciting new sound and features seasoned Latin Jazz musicians including Grammy® nominated bassist  Aldemar Valentin. Silvestre also teamed up with Mexican Latin Jazz musicians, including  Arodi Martinez  (saxophone), Renato Dominguez (drum) and Alonso Blanco (Piano, Keys)
