The Obsessions Octet was founded in 2005 by Kent Sangster. a jazz saxophonist, and his wife Joanna Ciapka-Sangster, a classically trained violinist, out of their long- held desire to make music together. This group is the most innovative, ambitious, crazy and satisfying project that they have undertaken to date.

The distinct sound of this group is an elegant blend of classical, latin and jazz elements, performing works by Astor Piazzolla, Chucho Valdes, Cole Porter and a collection of Kent Sangster's original compositions. The Obsessions Octet has put out two notable recordings: OBSESSION (2006), a mix of jazz standards and works by tango master Astor Piazzolla and originals by Kent Sangster; and MELODIA (2010), including works by Piazzolla, Afro- Cuban influenced music by Chucho Valdes, and more original Latin-oriented works by Kent Sangster.
