Show of Hands

Wednesday 4th October — 19:00-23:00

Every once in a while, an artist bursts onto the scene with such power, creativity and passion, that we get a sense of something beyond ourselves as we are moved by its expression. Giovanni Hidalgo is one of those artists.

From Puerto Rico, San Juan, Giovanni is arguably the world’s greatest living conga player. He has played with jazz legends Dizzie Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Art Blakey as well as rock icons Paul Simon and Carlos Santana. Not only has Giovanni Hidalgo completely transformed the hand techniques required to master the craft of conga playing, he has made possible a whole new language of expression. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to join Giovanni, live on stage with Jamiroquai percussionist, Sola Akingbola, and special guests, for an explosive night of Afro-Latin jazz-funk.
