Master Percussionist

Sammy Figueroa was born in the Bronx, New York, the son of the well-known singer Charlie Figueroa. His first professional experience came at the age of 18 with the band of bassist Bobby Valentin. During this time he co-founded the innovative fusion Brazilian/Latin group Raices, which broke ground for many of today’s bands. After releasing a classic album on Atlantic Records, the band moved to New York where Sammy was soon discovered by jazz flautist Herbie Mann. Tours and albums with the Brecker Brothers, Average White Band and John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra followed, culminating in recordings and tours with the legendary Miles Davis.
