It’s Conga Madness Week at the Blue Note, featuring three of the greatest Conga players in the world.  The week will start with Cuban conguero Francisco Aguabella on Tuesday night, whom Dizzy Gillespie once called “The John Coltrane of the Conga drums,” featuring Patato Valdes, Nick Marrero, and Edmar Castaneda.  The week continues with Candido Camero’s 86th Birthday celebration on Wednesday with some very special guests.  From Thursday to Sunday, Poncho Sanchez and his all-star band will take over the stage to wrap up the run of concerts.
