Growing up in Saint Petersburg, Sasha recalls getting his first drum set, practicing in the stairwell of his apartment building and getting his hands on new music via the neighborhood record collector dubbing cassettes for him. Sasha is a true student of jazz music and is building a drumming career to be reckoned with. He has started his own jazz label, Rainy Days Music, and is releasing fantastic music worldwide.
