Thursday October 24th at 6:30 PM – 9 PM
1300 Potrero Ave, San Francisco, California 94110.
Join us at the enchanting Eristavi Winery for an intimate local music experience representing and showcasing the best of the Bay Area’s Latin jazz scene.
October 24th features the forward-thinking multi-percussionist Silvestre Martinez and his Quartet from OAXACA. See his biography below!
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 (Afro-Mexican music from the coast). His music stays true to his Afro-Mexican roots, while also pushing forward by fusing modern jazz language with traditional Mexican music and inventive and explosive percussive grooves.

Enjoy wine (available for purchase) handcrafted by Master Vintner Victor Eristavi, who passionately instills a unique combination of old-world wine making techniques and modern technology to create his unique wines, while capturing the essence of distinct California grape varietals.
The music you will experience, rooted in Africa, Brazil, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and more, will showcase local Bay Area artists active in the Latin jazz scene locally and internationally. This experience is not just musical, but cultural in nature. We encourage you to interact with the artists during intermission and after the performance to learn more about where their music comes from and what it means to them!
