With Drummer, Composer, and Producer Bobby Sanabria Rose Theater, Frederick P. Rose Hall

Who/What/When: Jazz at Lincoln Center's Family Concert explores the complexities of Latin jazz with GRAMMY® nominee Bobby Sanabria and his Multiverse Big Band in Rose Theater on February 9th. Sanabria is a leader in the Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and jazz fields as both a drummer and percussionist, and recognized as one of the most articulate musician-scholars of la tradición living today.

"Latin jazz is an art form that was born right here in New York City in 1939 with Machito and the Afro-Cubans at the Park Palace Ballroom," says bandleader Bobby Sanabria, "You'll have fun, learn about the history, and interact with the band. But most of all, you'll hear the power and majesty of this great American art form."
