Sascha Ley
Vocalist | Actor | Improviser | Composer | Poet | Songwriter

As a versatile stage performer, Sascha Ley occupies a solid place in the Luxembourg art and cultural scene for years. The five-language actress, singer, composer and poet likes to follow unconventional paths – musically particularly oriented towards Jazz, Free Improvisation, imaginary folklore and contemporary music.

Parallel to music and drama she has devoted herself in recent years increasingly to writing and interdisciplinary performance.

Since the beginning of 2000 Sascha has produced several shows and albums under her label and Food for Thought Office yela music / yela muse.

Sascha is based in Luxembourg and works internationally.

“The vocal artist from Luxembourg, who also works as an actress and composer, is – if one may say so – without parallel in Europe … an extraordinary singer and musician in every way.” - JAZZ PODIUM (D)
