World-class all the way, just like Giovanni!
The LP Giovanni Palladium Series has a retro design with richly grained wood and exterior metal bands that harken back to the days of the famous Palladium Dance Hall.
Rarely does a percussionist reach the level of excellence of Giovanni Hidalgo. He has traveled the globe, performing with Dizzie Gillespie, "El Rey" Tito Puente, Carlos Santana, Paul Simon and the Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart. While Giovanni is known primarily as a Master Conguero, he is brilliant playing all percussion instruments. Ambidextrous, with faultless technical skills and superb musicality, he has created a style all his own. He continuously expands the boundaries of his music.
