“There is a rare musical triple point where talent, vision, and a wicked sense-of-humor meet.
Damn few artists ever make it there. I believe that it must be the address of one Sasha Masakowski.” - All About JazzSasha Masakowski, daughter of jazz guitar luminary Steve Masakowski, was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and has been a leading artist on the New Orleans music scene for many years as a vocalist, composer and producer.
