Candido's 79th Birthday Celebration


Latin Percussion great, Candido Camero, celebrated his 79th birthday while performing with the New Jersey City University Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Robert Romeo.  Also performing that night, percussionist Changuito, trombonist Juan Pablo Torres, On Time and the Ridgewood HS Percussion Ensemble. On Time aka The Holmes Family, sang a beautiful rendition of Happy Birthday for Candido.  It's great to see that after all these years Candido is still a great Conga player.
