Cándido Camero and Bobby Sananbria

Two great gentleman percussionists talking about the fine points of the art.

Cándido Camero is the most recorded conga player in jazz history.

In this interview, Bobby Sananbria interviews him about Cándido’s life in Cuba and New York City and the innovations he brought to percussion.

We covered Cándido and the film about him “Hands of Fire” in a previous post.

We also have two in depth interviews with Bobby (1) (2) we recommend.
