Sammy Figueroa is considered one of the worldâ€™s greatest musicians. This multi-Grammy nominee is considered one of the best percussionists alive. In a career spanning over thirty years, Sammy has several albums to his credit and has performed worldwide with some of the biggest stars such as Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Natalie Merchant and countless others. Heâ€™s a dynamic and energetic master, always in high demand.
Sammyâ€™s Cal Tjader tribute band was formed in 2008 â€œjust for funâ€, and received an immediate response, selling out shows with its lilting tropical sound and receiving the blessings of the Tjader family. Sammy and the band replicate Tjaderâ€™s music from the 60â€™s and 70â€™s and make it soar, with exciting percussion breaks and always, the sound of the vibraphone filling the air with beauty.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
