Candido Camero (1921 - ) is Cuban percussionist (mainly conga and bongo) who backed many a jazz act since the 1950s. Early on he had recorded in his native Cuba with Machito. He moved to New York in 1952 and started recording with Dizzy Gillespie. During 1953-54 he was in the Billy Taylor quartet and in 1954 he performed and recorded with Stan Kenton.
