Three explosive acts. One ever-evolving celebration of Black rock. Welcome to The Onyx Experience featuring Fefe Dobson, The OBGM's and SATE. A collision of Canada's rock scene sets the stage for a larger story of perseverance, artistry, and generational growth. Following a PA as they help bring the production to life, we go past the music, exploring the world of the artists on and off the stage. Black artists haven't always been heard, but in this moment they will be seen.

Watch The Onyx Experience, a new live concert film that traces Black rock music in Canada.

The Onyx Experience, which can be viewed above and on CBC Music's YouTube channel, questions the lack of Black artists present in contemporary rock, despite the genre's undeniable roots in the Black community. 

"I produced this film to celebrate and shine a light on Black artists doing rock music in Canada," says the film's producer and Toronto-based music industry veteran David "Click" Cox. "There are not enough opportunities for Black artists to be heard and seen."
