Eddie Palmieri is a nine-time Grammy award-winning legend in Salsa. He has released dozens of records on various labels, including what is now considered groundbreaking albums that include 1962’s La Perfecta, 1969’s Justicia Sun of Latin Music (1974), and 1987’s The Truth: La Verdad. Formerly the bandleader and founder of the bands La Perfecta, La Perfecta II, and Harlem River Drive, Eddie Palmieri is always dazzling and exciting.

Michel Camilo is a chart-topping Grammy, Emmy, and three-time Latin Grammy award-winning pianist, composer, and producer. By the time he was 16 years old, Camilo was playing with the National Symphony Orchestra of the Dominican Republic. After moving to New York in 1979, his song “Why Not?” became a hit for the Manhattan Transfer and caught on as a standard, and “Caribe” entered the repertoire of Dizzy Gillespie. Together these powerhouse pianists will tear the roof off Lehman Center.
