David Sanchez & Carib at the Terrace Theater, Kennedy Center in Washington, DC

Featuring:

David Sanchez, saxophone and percussion
Luis Perdomo, piano, Fender Rhodes
Ricky Rodriguez, bass
Obed Calvaire, drums
Lage Lund, guitar
Jhan Lee Aponte, Puerto Rican folkloric percussion/dance
Markus Schwartz, Haitian percussion   

Grammy®-winning Puerto Rican saxophonist David Sánchez’s deeply personal new project CARIB brings hot island melodies to the Terrace Theater this winter. CARIB uses modern jazz to explore the kinship between the West African drum rhythms of Yuba, Calinda, and Sika and music from Haiti, Carriacou, and his native Puerto Rico. Sánchez takes a yet deeper dive into the Afro-Caribbean musical lineage and its shared history with the American jazz tradition.

This event is part of The Human Journey, a collaboration between the Kennedy Center, National Geographic Society, and the National Gallery of Art. The Human Journey invites audiences to investigate the powerful experiences of migration, exploration, identity, and resilience through the lenses of the performing arts, science, and visual art.
