David Sanchez & Carib @ 2018 SF Jazz Fest

David Sánchez' Carib

A GRAMMY-winning saxophonist and member of the SFJAZZ Collective, David Sánchez presents his newest project, CARIB – a deeply personal journey using modern jazz to explore the kinship between the West African drum rhythms of Yuba, Calinda, and Sika and music in Haiti, Carriacou, and his native Puerto Rico... CARIB, in which Sánchez takes a yet deeper dive into the Afro-Caribbean musical lineage and its shared history with the American jazz tradition.

Experience Ayiti Benefit Concert

Experience Ayiti Benefit Concert

Experience Ayiti (XA) supports the education of Haiti's youth through the performing arts by providing instruments, workshops, and other necessary resources for their training, performance, and growth. Through our efforts we hope to create an international community in Haiti composed of artists, teachers, researchers, professionals, ethnomusicologists, and filmmakers.

Music has the power to change the world and the skills required to learn an instrument (dedication, team work, improvisation, communication, math and logic, etc) are important beyond the bandstand in creating a generation of Haitians who will become the leaders of their generation.
