Sun'il Ei'de was a Bith musician and professional drum player for the popular jizz band known as Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes. In 0 BBY, Sun'il was on stage in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina during the Modal Nodes' performance of "Mad About Me." Sun'il was also one of the five Modal Nodes that played in the cantina during the Imperial curfew of 1 ABY.
Behind the scenesEdit
Sun'il Ei'de is the seventh Bith musician visible on stage in the Mos Eisley cantina sequence during 1977's Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Barely visible, the seventh Modal Node was the subject of speculation for decades until a picture from the film on the StarWars.com Encyclopedia clearly showed all seven Modal Nodes on stage. The Star Wars Blog article The Star Wars Holiday Special Cantina: Who’s Who also identified Sun'il Ei'de as one of the five Modal Nodes who accompany the bartender Ackmena in her rendition of "Goodnight, But Not Goodbye."
