Palmieri continues to innovate, and new music will be released in successive volumes commemorating his 80th year along with a tour entitled “EP @ 80.” Palmieri’s recordings have become classics with such hits as “Azucar”, “Vamonos Pa’l Monte”, and “Muñeca”. The maestro will be joined by his orchestra along with several celebrated musical guests for another unforgettable Salsa concert event!
