Among the most influential and versatile drummers in the world, Antonio Sanchez returns to The Jazz Cafe with his Grammy nominated project Bad Hombre — a sociopolitical electronica & drums exploration.
Born in Mexico City, 4 time Grammy Award winner Antonio Sanchez began playing the drums at age five and performed professionally in his early teens in Mexico’s rock, jazz and latin scenes.
In 2014 Sanchez’s popularity soared when he scored Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) which ended up fetching 4 Academy awards (including best picture) and for which Antonio won a Grammy award.
In Spring 2022 Antonio will release SHIFT (Bad Hombre Vol 2) on Warner Bros Records. The much-anticipated recording features Sanchez collaborating with artists ranging from Trent Reznor to Lila Downs…from Meshell Ndegeocello to Dave Mathews and more – songs from a spectrum of international singer-songwriters Sanchez greatly admires.
