“The arrival of a major innovator who also knows how to have fun.”
The Guardian (UK)
"Listening to Richie Barshay's deft drumming
is always a treat."
Time Out New York
Sanctuary is here!
Eclectic percussionist Richie Barshay's second album as leader, Sanctuary, is a collection of drum-centric originals, accompanied by special guest Chick Corea. The music highlights the role of drumming as a personal and shared sanctuary, "harboring the diversity of our world and its countless rhythms." Drawing influences from Brasil, Mali, India, and personal explorations with found-recycled percussion, the songs were recorded inside a historic synagogue in Brooklyn.
