Jhair Sala

percussion, vocals

Born in Perú and raised in New York, Jhair Sala spent his formative years studying intensively with Pedrito Martinez, whom he  met when he was ten years old. Jhair is now in high demand as a session musician and bandleader in his own right, but there is an uncanny magic when he plays with Pedrito. Jhair’s touch, timing, and feel are truly remarkable, and with literally thousands of hours of studying, performing and jamming together, the two drummers play as one.
