Ady Martinez (born Adianez Milaris Martinez) is a Venezuelan singer/songwriter, educator, and cuatro player, known through her distinctive style of Latin-inspired music. She was born and raised in La Guaira, a city located near Caracas on the Caribbean coast of northern Venezuela. She is of Afro-Venezuelan, Spanish, and Indigenous Venezuelan ancestry. Besides her grandparents, Ady often cites the popular Venezuelan musicians Gaspar Navarro and Cruz Felipe Iriarte as major influences in her early musical life. (In addition to music, Ady shares the flavors of Venezuela at her restaurant, Juana's (https://www.juanascuisine.com/), in downtown State College PA.)
