BCUC

Activist psychedelics and enjoyable afrobeat, that is Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness, or BCUC for short. The multi-piece jazz band started as a social gathering in Soweto, South Africa. There, BCUC was inspired by indigenous music that usually does not reach the mainstream. Until now, because with his mesmerizing compositions, BCUC has become a welcome guest on many festival dance floors in recent years. In 2022, BCUC was already on stage in Grounds and blew the audience away with a great show, they will be back in April!

The seven-piece band has captivated audiences both locally and globally with its indigenous funk and energetic performances, quickly becoming one of South Africa's most successful musical exports. Jazz sounds from the '70s and '80s are replaced by hip-hop influences and punk rock energy. They take the listener on an intriguing epic journey and share their controversial but interesting view of modern Africa. They address the harsh realities of the voiceless, especially the plight of the unskilled workers at the bottom of the social food chain. BCUC speaks about the elusiveness of the spirit world of the ancestors, by which they are inspired. The Africa depicted by BCUC is not poor, but rich in traditions, rituals and beliefs.
