Music Director Hugo Sanbone

Hugo Sanbone is a multi-talented conductor, composer, and multi-instrumentalist celebrated for his innovative approach to music. Originating from Sergipe, Brazil, he developed his career in the ebullient scene of Salvador da Bahia. Sanbone has become a pivotal figure in blending the intricate rhythms of Afro-Brazilian music with jazz’s individualistic expressions.

Sanbone is the creative force behind the Sanbone Pagode Orquestra, founded in 2009. This ensemble is known for its groundbreaking work, merging classical music elements with the vibrant percussion of Bahia, leading to a new and compelling musical genre. This innovative approach has earned him a respected place in the music scene and led to significant academic contributions. As a Brazilian Music and Culture professor at the University of Bahia, Sanbone extends his influence to the next generation of musicians, further cementing his legacy.

Hugo Sanbone is working on an exciting project with the International Brazilian Opera Company (IBOC).  Under the artistic direction of IBOC’s resident composer João MacDowell, Sanbone is at the helm of the Yemanja Project, crafting an opera that pays homage to Yemanja, the Yoruba goddess of the seas. This ambitious project aims to celebrate the rich musical heritage of the African diaspora, infusing the opera with a range of influences from across the African continent. It’s a testament to Sanbone’s ability to bridge cultural gaps and create music that resonates with a global audience.
