"Conmigo" by Nickodemus featuring Sammy Ayala & The Candela Allstars by Nickodemus (NYC) published on 2010/12/14 05:37:09 +0000 Sammy Ayala has been a complete pleasure to collaborate with the past years! He's not only been in the most legendary salsa bands (Cortijo), but he wrote music with that huge smile until the day he recently passed away. For his 74th? or 75th? Birthday, Sammy came down to one of our Turntables on the Hudson parties & rocked the mic & some percussion with us until 4AM... I can only wish to be as talented, animated & positive as Mr Ayala when I'm over 70! Unfortunately we lost Sammy in the physical last year (2012) but we hope you explore all his beautiful music over the years!
