Sasha K.A.: “Tumbleweed” (feat. Tom Meny & Lang Freeman)

By: Jack Anderson

Like many musicians in the early stages of aural addiction, Austin’s Sasha Klare-Ayvazian began playing in bands when he was only thirteen. Fast forward to today, where this multi-instrumentalist, composer, multi-Master’s recipient, and educator has scored for film, television, and a video game, and continues to lead the indie-folk ensemble American Dreamer and direct the Jazz Ensemble at the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, on top of several other ventures.

But it was only in 2020 that Klare-Ayvazian made the big pivot to solo songwriting under the eponym Sasha K.A.releasing his debut full-length Family this past February. Family‘s proven to be solid jump-off point in K.A.’s career, whose saga continues with a set of collaborative singles, most recently with a discussion on COVID-19 kenopsia, one that’s become inseparable from Sasha K.A.’s typically busy performance schedule. The earnest Americana installment, “Tumbleweed” features Tom Meny and Lang Freeman and is sure to keep you rollin’ on through the week.

Nihiloxica: “Asidi”

What happens when you aggressive UK bass collides with testosterone-driven Bugandan percussion? Nothing quiet, that’s for sure. That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
