A man of landscape and soundscape; Jon Sanders has developed a unique world music sound and style that evokes diverse cultures in a "quantum leaping" way, so says the Irish Times.

Playing the bass mandola and the eight stringed, guitar-bodied guizouki, Jon uses a second pickup to add bass lines to create a depth and colour to his compositions, which draw on Celtic, Arabic, African and contemporary styles. Add a percussive stomp and emotive vocals and the sounds soar into a new dimension!

In contrast, he finger-picks an upside-down, variously-tuned uke, giving Mali-inspired rhythms and melodies alongside bluegrass stomp and Celtic/Mexican hybrids. Called thengoni-uke, the wee instrument sounds harp-like, funky as and a wee bit cheeky.

That's why the Irish Times arts section, The Ticket, called his latest album - Zoukelele - "a deeply meditative, impishly playful, jazz tinged collection".

He is currently touring in Europe summer 2019 and begins a two month nationwide New Zealand tour in October 2019 of his forthcoming album.
