For more than 20 years, SONSAX has pursued a particular creative vision. Through the years, SONSAX has maximized all the different qualities and possibilities of the saxophone and percussion, instruments that due to its versatility allow performing all different styles and rhythms that exist in the different musical languages around the world. The Montreal International Jazz Festival describes: "Costa Rican band SONSAX is a "world saxophone quartet" in every sense of the word. The sax part is the four principal members of the family (baritone, tenor, alto, soprano plus percussion), and the son can be from anywhere: sometimes cool, sometimes frenzied, sometimes laid-back lounge, sometimes pure funk and always with enough Latin flavor to move you to dance or dream." SONSAX has become one the most influential saxophone ensembles from Latin America, performing hundreds of concerts in countries such as Russia, Japan, Canada, United States, Chile, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, France, Germany, United Kingdom, México, and Central America, among others. SONSAX has released 4 recordings and a DVD of exceptional breadth and creativity making many appearances in different radio and TV shows in Latin America and has presented clinics and Master classes in many universities around the world.
