Co-ordinated Independence at Miller Outdoor Theatre

Candido y Caliente

Notes:
Candido Camero, 93, inventor of “coordinated independence” on the Congas – steady rthymn with one hand, improvisation with the other

Candido brought Congas into the emerging Jazz revolution of the 40s and 50s

When the standard was a single conga, Candido brought three and changed the conga from backup instrument to lead

A show by Candido is the Holy Grail for every Conga player on the planet
