Sa (仨), which means ‘three of us’ in Northern Chinese dialect, depicts the coming together of three musicians united by their passion for music and breaking new grounds. Though the instrumental trio is predominantly Chinese in nature, with versatile musicians Andy C. on the Dizi (Chinese flute), Natalie Alexandra on the Guzheng (Chinese zither), and Cheryl Ong on drums and percussion, their music expands on their traditional Chinese roots, while creatively infusing modern elements with a tasteful use of electronics.
The trio made its debut appearance at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre in celebration of National Day 2011, and more recently at the Sub-station, collaborating with drummer Darren Moore as part of the Tribal Gathering of Tongue Tasters Series. They have also been invited to perform in various cultural events such as Temasya Kampong Glam 2011 and Forever Sarong Kebaya at the Peranakan Museum.
As the pioneer Musical Art group to expand on traditional roots through the use of modern technology, the trio hopes to share their interpretations of traditional roots with you without losing touch of current times, bringing you on their journey of self-discovery through music.
Collaborator for Imperial Dancers presented at Huayi: Chinese Festival of Arts (2014)
