Bobby talks with NPR about West Side Story Reimagined
Growing up as a Nuyorican kid in the Bronx, Bobby Sanabria first watched “West Side Story” in the movie theaters, on the 10th anniversary of the film’s release. “I was mesmerized,” said the Latin Jazz drummer and composer. In 2017, the Broadway classic celebrated its 60th anniversary and to honor this milestone, Sanabria re-envisioned what Latino New York City actually sounds like. The result was his album, “West Side Story Reimagined.” Maria Hinojosa talks to the drummer and composer about what the iconic musical means to him and how he paid tribute to its legacy.
