About Antonio Sanchez: Birdman Live

Four-time GRAMMY Award winner Antonio Sánchez, one of the most renowned drummers in the international jazz scene, takes the stage to celebrate the 10th anniversary celebration of Birdman, Alejandro Iñárritu’s Academy Award winning Best Picture starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts. During a screening of the film, Sánchez will recreate his score, but as Sánchez improvised most of the original music for the film, each performance is unique — a showcase of his musical creativity. This performance immerses the audience in the riveting film while experiencing the power of storytelling through live music. Born in Mexico City, he began playing the drums at the age of five, and was playing professionally by the time he was a teenager. He pursued a degree in classical piano at the National Conservatory in Mexico and later graduated magna cum laude from both the Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory. He collaborated with Pat Metheny for 18 years, and has worked with greats such as Chick Corea, Gary Burton, Michael Brecker and Charlie Haden. His latest album, SHIFT, features Trent Reznor and Dave Mathews. Said The New York Times, “[Sanchez is] one of the standout jazz drummers on the contemporary scene, a polyrhythmic ace attuned to the subtlest dynamic fluctuations.”
