More than just a musical duo, uKhoiKhoi call themselves a "a live looping, musical performance art showpiece." Hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa, the group is comprised of musician/composer Yogin Sullaphen and vocalist Anelisa Stuurman.

By combining operatic elements with chanting and poetry, they create a unique Afro-Futuristic sound they call "indigenous-electro."
