Master Latin percussionist Sammy Garcia is counted as one of the very best amongst such legendary performers as: Conjunto Clásico, Willie Colón, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Tito Nieves, Puerto Rican Power, just to name a few. His professional experience has served as a strong center for his artistic foundation, entertaining diverse audiences around the world. His artistic path has been split between being a musician and a director and has led him to be an innovator in the world of modern Salsa music. This innovative vision is truly realized in his latest project “El Sabor De Puerto Rico”, where under the direction of Garcia the “swing” and “cadence” of traditional Salsa music is best exemplified.
