Havana, Cuba-born percussionist Alexey Marti has been making New Orleans his home since 2008 and tearing up stages all over town. There is no doubt in his skills, as he finished first place in the 2012 Thelonious Monk Jazz Institute Competition for his Afro-Latin Hand Drumming. As a member of the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra and bandleader of his own collectives, Alexey incorporates elements of modern New Orleans percussion into his flavorful Cuban conga and rumba music and the result is a dance-worthy, entertaining and high-energy show.
