BOBBY SANABRIA & QUARTETO ACHÉ
This band rockets between bop, straight-up and charging, to the languorous bolero, to galloping Cuban timba, to rhythms from Puerto Rico and Brazil and the Caribbean. It is propulsive, slangy, and above all historically literate.

Join us in kicking off the 2019 Hudson Jazz Festival with an evening of sizzling Latin Jazz by seven-time GRAMMY nominated drummer/percussionist, Bobby Sanabria and his Quarteto Aché. Sanabria’s infectious grooves are grounded in his tenures with such legendary figures as Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, Mongo Santamaria, Paquito D’Rivera, and the Godfather of Afro-Cuban Jazz, Mario Bauzá. Puerto Rican by descent and raised in New York’s South Bronx, Sanabria is hailed as one of the most popular Latin drummer/percussionists of his generation.
