Feeling a bit camera shy


Born in Buenos Aires Argentina, Iván Martirena moved to Chicago from Boston MA, where he attended Berklee College of Music, to pursue his career as a Jazz musician in the Chicago area. After being part of several projects and networking with a lot of the most important local musicians, he formed the Iván Martirena Trio, and together they develop a sound as a unit, breaking away from the traditional forms of jazz and adding elements of south-american folk music, creating a new and exotic sound.

Iván Martirena and his trio combine fresh and exciting rhythmic ideas with soulful melodies and improvised sections that bloom into exciting and original compositions. There is a fine balance in incorporating new ideas into songs people can relate to without losing the audience. It’s safe to say that this band sits on the fence between the folk traditional sound plus all the elements of jazz and improvised music. This creates a really exciting live show because of it is a different and more energetic experience.

The band has enjoyed success over the last two years at such Chicago area clubs as, Vida Lounge, Ice Factory, Hungry Brain, The Elbo Room, Spot6, Café Luna, Weed’s, Griffin’s Public House, Gallery Cabaret and various clubs in throughout Boston and New York.
