Music may be time and culture specific but sound knows no limits. In producing art, the trio of SA(仨) create their own soundscapes, exploring all possibilities not bound by time or culture. Founded in 2010, part of the band's name, 仨, meaning "three" in northern Chinese dialect, is a tribute to their Chinese roots. Professionally trained in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Beijing, Andy C plays the dizi (flute), Natalie Alexandra plays the guzheng (zither) and Cheryl Ong plays drums and percussions. For SA(仨), their exploration of sound begins with each instrument and every original composition is a bold experiment that combines traditional elements with modern techniques, such as live looping. Spontaneous at every turn, each performance is a risk that the band takes as they delve into the question of identity.
