Giovanni Hidalgo

Puerto Rican native Giovanni Hildago is widely acknowledged as one of the world's greatest congueros. An unrivaled performer whose skill and technique is admired by percussionists around the world, Giovanni combines the flavors of Latin and Jazz with his own unique style.

Giovanni has performed with the likes of Dave Valentin, Eddie Palmieri, Paquito d'Rivera and Carlos Santana. He has also traveled all over the world with Tito Puente, Dizzy Gillespie and Planet Drum, a percussion ensemble led by former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart.

Giovanni's performances at LP sponsored clinics and concerts dazzle audiences because of his peerless speed, grace and control. As LP Founder and Chairman Martin Cohen puts it, "Giovanni represents the talent of a new generation. He's arguably one of the most talented and respected conga drummers of our time, and rarely is there a musician who reaches his heights."

Giovanni Hidalgo's technique is demonstrated on his videos, In the Tradition by Giovanni Hidalgo, Conga Masters Changuito and Giovanni and Conga Masters Meet Again Giovanni and Changuito produced by DCI Video.
