BCUC – Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness

BCUC

Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness (BCUC) consists of six musicians from Soweto, South Africa. BCUC moves the audience both physically and emotionally with a sound derived straight from their ancestral lineage. BCUC demystifies the general worldviews about modern Africa. The basic elements of the unmistakable BCUC sound are abstract congas from Cheex. With Lerato playing a moody, bipolar rocking guitar. Laced on top by the ragged rawness of Jovi unpretentious vocals, with Luja on the bass drum delivering flowing boom bap raps. Hloni funky howling ad-libs accompanied by whistles and nose-flutes. Sweetened with Kgomotso clear vocals and the tambourine. These ingredients are stirred till a chant of ecstasy and euphoria. BCUC takes the audiences along on an intriguing epic journey, sharing their controversial yet interesting views of modern Africa. They tackle the harsh realities of the voiceless, especially the plight of the uneducated workers at the bottom of the social food chain. BCUC taps into the elusiveness of the spirit world of ancestors by which they are inspired. The Africa portrayed by BCUC is not poor, but rich in tradition, rituals and beliefs.
