Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Kenny Martin has been the irreplaceable drummer of the legendary funk band Defunkt for over 35 years, touring the world several times. He played on more than 100 albums, including Peter Fox, as well as Lester Bowie, Jean-Paul Bourelly and Jaco Pastorius. In this episode of the Quasimodo Live Music Series Kenny Martin and his Berlin-based trio is taking the viewers on the journey through his childhood jazz influences - popular music of the 40s, 50s & 60s.

Since 1975, the Quasimodo has been one of the oldest clubs in Berlin's cultural landscape and one of the most renowned live music venues in Europe. The initially jazz basement, in the truest sense of the word, became the musical home for many international artists of the most diverse genres. Under the Delphi-Filmpalast in the heart of Berlin, this musical cult club developed into a popular venue for jazz, blues, rock, latin, soul and funk concerts and music with quality.
