Sun Xa Experiment is an Ancestral spiritual Avant garde out the box group hailing from Gauteng and Durban South Africa born in 2014. A 7 piece live music band that caters a spiritual Ancestral sound that tells of stories of who we are as the global community without race colour or nation. With their music written in IsiZulu, Sesotho and English their presence on stage is felt through their performance that leaves you in healing mode.
What they give to people during their performances is not only music but also part of it is a spiritual journey into self-discovery, more is connecting with your ancestors, reminder of who you are and where you are from as a human being. Their sound which they see as medicinal “Umculo Umuthi” is a 6 track journey through an hour set. Sun Xa Experiment gives a consultation performance which is a sound you do not want to miss.
As Sun-Xa Experiment we paint our bodies with paint everytime we go on stage. it symbolises a mark of a ritual that’s about to take place on stage,the painting symbolises our past lifetimes ( ancestors) and the journey that has been walked before us. The painting patterns are different in all performance based on the energy on that day. We just continuing the healing through music.
