Percussion master, Poncho Sanchez will perform tonight, May 2 at the Lincoln Theatre here in Columbus presented in Association with the King Arts Complex. The show begins at 8pm and tickets are still available.
Poncho Sanchez learned from the masters. As a youngster, he played alongside Cal Tjader, Claire Fisher, and Mongo Santamaria. Now as a bandleader for almost two decades, he has unswervingly preserved a bedrock style of Afro-Cuban Latin jazz pioneered half a century ago by his heroes, while infusing it with his own fresh and engaging interpretations.
