ABOUT RENATO MARTINS
The Brazilian world-class percussionist and former Cirque du Soleil artist Renato Martins is described as an innovator of Brazilian percussion and is considered one of the most internationally respected percussionists in the world. Renato Martins continuously creates new techniques for traditional instruments such as the Udu and the Cajon. He sees all objects as potential instruments and has also been known to use entire sets of kitchen utensils in his exploration of sound. Anything he finds that produces sound has been hit, plucked, struck, shaken and scratched in his pursuit of musical reinvention.
