Cuban rumba percussionist, Pedrito Martinez released a new CD recently in tribute to Spanish Flamenco singer Camaron de la Isla.
Though Camaron de la Isla passed away in 1992, he is considered one of the greatest flamenco singers of all time.
Many musicians have tried to fuse de la Isla’s Flamenco sound with other musical genres.
Pedrito Martinez doesn’t even try. Instead he takes hints from the Flamenco legend’s music and makes it his own.
