Jon Sass brings the tuba to places where it’s never been before. (Wavelength, New Orleans)

Jon’s Souluba band is journey rooted in a sound of the tuba in a band led by a one of a kind tuba player. The music reveals a mix of Jazz, Latin, Funk, Carribean elements yet, sound original. Having grown up in Harlem, New York City at a time where the black music of the 60’s through the 80’s, shared a sonic vision of high humanity, remains a central influence in Jon’s vision with the Souluba. This formation is new and has great musicians from different corners of the world. Jon’s imitable approach and soulful sound on the tuba has given him a truly unique voice with the tuba. One of the world’s most innovative tubists is not to be missed! (Pressetext)
