The Conga Kings.
On The Conga Kings, Candido Camero collaborates with two other living conga legends, "Patato" Valdes and Giovanni Hidalgo, to create one of the greatest summits Cuban music has ever seen. Recorded in Chesky Records' signature glorious sound, The Conga Kings is a celebratory tribute to the vitality and artistry of Latin jazz.
Giovanni Hidalgo the son of percussionist Jose "Manengue" Hidalgo, was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1963 -- which makes him young enough to be a grandson of Camero or Valdes.
