Singer Sasha Masakowski is an exciting young talent who was born during our 1986 season into a family of musicians in New Orleans. She has been a leading voice on the New Orleans music scene since 2009, when she was awarded “Best Emerging Artist” by the Big Easy Association. Vanity Fair included her on a list of the world’s top jazz musicians of any age, and DownBeat named Sasha among the most innovative musicians coming out of New Orleans to date. Her influences draw from jazz to electronic music to rock, and her approach to music is as playful, charismatic, and spontaneous as her personality. She likes to perform in fully improvised settings to cultivate her exotic style. With her new album Art Market, Sasha showcases her skills as a vocalist, composer, and bandleader.
