Hear about the world from the perspective of Colombian conguero and composer Samuel Torres, one of the most important composers and arrangers on the Latin jazz scene today.

He has toured with Grammy Award winner Arturo Sandoval throughout the world for four years. He has also played with renowned jazz artists such as the late Tito Puente, Chick Corea, Poncho Sanchez, Pete Escovedo, and Dave Valentin, among many others.
