The Fruition Experience combines elements of Neo Soul, Hip Hop and Jazz with positive messages of Love, Peace, and Unity to create a unique style of "Conscious Music".
The Fruition Experience is a five piece group of musicians well versed in many styles of music including jazz, hip hop, R&B, soul, gospel, funk, rock and classical to name a few. The sound and song repertoire ranges from acoustic straight ahead jazz themes to an electronic fusion of hip hop and neo soul sample based songs with soulful vocals and cutting edge contemporary jazz chops similar to Herbie Hancocks ground breaking “Head Hunters” album. All while spanning the spectrum of positive life topics such as love, freedom, unity, perseverance and hope.
Listeners have described the group as having a sound and image reminiscent of Fertile Ground and vibe similar to that of the Robert Glasper Experiment and The Roots. The Fruition Experience has been successful at developing a following in the DMV area with their own hosted quarterly festival called “The Experience LIVE” (A Conscious Music, Arts and Holistic Health Movement).
The band consists of soulful vocals and percussion by Ama Chandra. Dual Keyboards, Effects, Samples and Hip Hop style adlibs by band leader Aaron Hill. Smooth Vocal harmonies, effects and dual keyboards by Micah Smith. Bass by Anthony Jenkins and Drums and Electronic Percussion by Charles Wilson.
