Sasha Berliner is an award winning vibraphonist and composer based in NYC. Named Downbeat Critics' Poll's Rising Star Vibraphonist winner in 2021, Sasha has notably shared the stage for recent projects with Christian McBride, Tyshawn Sorey, and Nicholas Payton, and leads her own group for international touring. She recently released “Onyx”(2022), her “vigorous, unabashedly avant garde sophomore recording […] finding the budding, San Francisco-born vibraphonist and composer in a fiery, dense and genre-bending posture.” Glide Magazine urges listeners to “add Berliner to the new vanguard of contemporary artists that are reshaping jazz with unconventional compositional approaches”. 

“A young mallet master” - JazzTimes Magazine
“Despite her tender age of 23, Berliner plays, composes and leads her band with maturity and artistic presence rarely attained. […] Berliner is
 in the firmament of the here and now in modern jazz, and appears likely to occupy that upper stratosphere for some time to come.” - Paul Rauch, All About Jazz
