To finish the night, Antonio Sánchez’ Shift, part of his Bad Hombre project, will feature Thana AlexaBIGYUKI and Lex Sadler, who will explore and deconstruct language and voice as a source of rhythm.

Antonio Sánchez, born in Mexico City, is a four-time Grammy Award winner. Sánchez pursued a degree in classical piano at the National Conservatory in Mexico and later enrolled in Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory. Since moving to New York City in 1999, Sánchez has become one of the most sought-after drummers on the international jazz scene. His popularity soared when he scored Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), for which Sánchez won a Grammy award. Additional film/tv projects include EPIX network’s Get Shorty and Hippopotamus among others. He turned his upset over social injustice into a tribute to every immigrant’s journey in his epic musical statement Lines in the Sand. Sánchez is the recipient of three Echo Awards, Golden Globe & BAFTA nominations and has been thrice named Modern Drummer’s “Jazz Drummer of the Year”. His new album SHIFT (Bad Hombre Vol. II) features Sánchez playing virtually every instrument on the album in addition to being its producer. SHIFT features Trent Reznor, Dave Mathews, Kimbra, Ana Tijoux, Meshell Ndegeocello and more.

This event is presented in partnership with World Music Institute with additional promotional support by Grupo Miztli
