BCUC – Bantu Continua Consciousness from Soweto, South Africa

BCUC, AKA Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness from Soweto, South Africa who class their music as ‘afropsychedelic’ and ‘africangungungu’ join us for a night of stirring vocals, inventive bass guitar, drums and chanting that will leave you thinking South African music is anything but bland! This seven-piece band where a highlight at Womad Festival and we are pleased to have them play right here in the Eco Park Barn.

Their music derives from a blend of genres across the ages. Drawing inspiration from Indigenous music that is not exposed in the mainstream. Singing ritual songs, around the fire hood songs, shebeen songs, church songs and then infuse them with raps and a rock and roll attitude. Always aiming for a timeless, honest and traditional/ ritualistic sound. The music always resonates with the spirituality, the history and the future of the people.

“As BCUC, we want to tell stories of where we are from, showing where we are and where we are headed. Our Indigenous Music is not trapped in the past. Instead our views embrace the now. We are influenced by what we see, hear and the global community. Bantu Music (Africa Ngungungu) is not constrained to where we are from instead it recognizes human connection regardless of geography, culture or social standing.”

It is music for the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE, with the PEOPLE.

“BCUC where a highlight of WOMAD Festival” Gilles Peterson
