The Origin Band

Origin's main band was formed in 2001 with the mission to be an agent of unity in the church and outreach to the city of Cape Town. While the band members have changed a little over the years, the intention has remained the same.

While we have not yet recorded the Cape Town band, our Edinburgh band recorded an album in 2009, un|broken, on the Isle of Mull at Mucmara studios. This is available to purchase from Origin SA, and you can listen to extracts of several of the tracks.
