Wild Lotus Listening Room Presents: Sasha Masakowski

Instructor: Sasha Masakowski

Date/Time: Saturday, July 13, 7 pm
Location: Studio

Wild Lotus Listening Room is proud to present an evening with Sasha Masakowski!

Over the past few years, New Orleans born and raised jazz vocalist Sasha Masakowski has been developing a solo project featuring all original electronic/ pop influenced material which she performs live using analog drum sequencers, synthesizers and samplers. Throughout her set, Sasha builds entire songs from scratch, looping her voice and improvising with her devices, while audiences groove to the beats she programs underneath her hypnotic airy vocals.

Sasha has performed with her band at major clubs and festivals across the United States and abroad, such as the legendary Blue Note (NYC), Jazz at Lincoln Center Shanghai, Cotton Club Tokyo, Jazz Standard (NYC), Detroit Jazz Festival, SF Jazz Center (San Francisco), Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Bird’s Basement (Melbourne) San Jose Jazz Festival, Phoenix Musical Instrument Museum, and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, among others.

During the 2020 pandemic, she collaborated extensively with Grammy winning artist Nicholas Payton, co-writing and producing an experimental electronic album, Quarantined with Nick, and playing a weekly duo concert with Payton for several months, live-streamed via Blue Note NYC. In the spring of 2021 Sasha was invited to produce an album for renowned Thai singer, Rasmee. She spent several months living in Chiang Mai, co-writing, producing, singing background vocals and playing synths & electronic drums on Rasmee’s Thong Lor Cowboy album. The title track, an original song of Sasha’s, hit #1 on the pop radio charts in Thailand, and the album was nominated “Album of the Year” by Thai Pop Music Awards for 2021.

In 2022 she performed at the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival with Nicholas Payton’s trio, New World Order, featuring Sasha and guitarist Cliff Hines. They went on to record an album and recently performed at the Blue Note Jazz Festival in Napa, CA, curated by Robert Glasper and hosted by Dave Chapelle.
