Sacha currently performs, records, and teaches with some of Vancouver’s top musicians. Skilled in African and Latin percussion, she has performed and toured throughout B.C. and the rest of Canada. She last appeared at Electropical in May.
She’ll accompany the DJ duo as they spin their signature mix of African rhythms, Arabian waves, Brazilian beats, Caribbean sounds, and Balkan bangers.
If you haven’t seen Sacha in action, you’re in for a treat. Don’t miss out.
