Antonio Sanchez’ New Album Honors Migrants

Percussionist and composer, Antonio Sanchez, perhaps most famous for his solo drum score for ‘Birdman’, has released a new piece of jazz work entitled ‘Lines In The Sand’.

The cover photo depicts the separation wall between the U.S. and Mexico where it dives into the pacific ocean and the album is based on and in honor of the migrants who risk everything for a new chance.

Sanchez has used his voice, or rather his sticks, in protest before, on his 2017 album ‘Bad Hombre‘ which name refers to something 45 once said publicly.

Sanchez’ new album is a stunning whirlwind of percussion, electronics, keyboard and voice, some of which is performed by the multi-instrumentalist.

Check out ‘Lines In The Sand’ below and follow Sanchez on social media where he voices his concerns about the state of both of his countries frequently.
