SunSeeds is a Melbourne based band composed of four talented musicians who have come together to realise their dream of creating and sharing the music that they are passionate about, music from their land, their ancestors and Indigenous cultures of Chile, Colombia, and the Andean region. All these rhythms then get blended with a fresh and modern touch of electronica and house beats, creating a soundscape of colours, jungle,  and psicodelia through drums, pipes and charangos and playing styles such as cumbia, saya and festejo.
