    Sammy Figueroa has long been regarded as one of the world’s great musicians. As one of the music’s leading percussionists he has played on countless records and is well-known for his versatility in a multitude of musical styles.  When Sammy plays percussion he tells a story, creating a playful conversation with other musicians and taking the listener on a musical journey .
