Candido: Hands of Fire

Performances, conversations, and personal testimonies combine to offer a comprehensive look at acclaimed percussionist Candido's remarkable contributions to the world of Cuban music in filmmaker Escrito's affectionate cinematic tribute to the man who performed with some of the greatest performers of his generation. A veteran musician whose work with such legends as Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Ray Charles, Celiz Cruz, and Frank Sinatra elevated him to superstar status, Candido's remarkable career is recounted through the memories of such contemporaries as Chico Alvarez, Ray Santos, Tony Bennett, and a whole host of highly respected musicians.
