BCUC are an almighty, powerful band from Soweto, South Africa, a town rich in history and musical legacy. Their name reflects their musical composition: ‘Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness’. Perhaps their most characteristic musical feature, as their name suggests, is their dedication to continuing unheard indigenous music from the Bantu and Uhuru traditions.

BCUC continues this legacy whilst blending a punchy mixture of various traditions with afro-psychedelia as their long, progressive tracks amount atmosphere and energy to great climactic endings. Their music is also funky, with strong bass and drums, all in a punk-rock/ hip-hop style with their political and powerful lyrics.

Their shows are huge in energy from the first note, each drum beat as feisty as the first. making it impossible not be pulled into their shared consciousness in an accessible expression through music.
