Album Notes
Afro-Caribbean music grew from historical processes of cultural syncretism between descendents of African slaves and Hispano-Europeans, and in the case of Veracruz, the intermixing of the indigenous cultures of that land as well.
The principal objective of CORAZÓN SUR is to diffuse this rich Caribbean music, continuing and deepening the process of cultural syncretism by adapting Mexican music to Caribbean and Veracruzian rhythms and structures. This musical fusion is manifested in songs such as “La Bruja,” which is a traditional son from Veracruz, interpreted as a cha-cha-cha.
CORAZÓN SUR plays classic Latin Jazz songs as well as their own compositions of this genre. Songs like “Danzón para llevar,” which utilizes characteristics of the traditional danzón and fuses it with a more modern structure, illustrate this Latin Jazz influence.
Another goal of CORAZÓN SUR is to broaden the audience of the music of Mexican and Latin American composers such as Rafael Campos, Agustín Lara, David Haro, Guti Cárdenas, Mario Ruíz Armengol, among others. These composers represent a style of music very distinct from the genres of Mexican music that have been typically distributed throughout the United States and the world. In this sense, CORAZÓN SUR promotes and creates awareness about the musical richness and diversity of Mexico, widening the narrow view that the world has of Latin America.

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 México.

He has perform and record 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. Martinez has built chops that move across several different contexts as composer, flute player and producer. 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 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.
