BCUC - Worked with us on the soundtrack for Surfing and Sharks Documentary . Together in the Rebel Music Studios in Amsterdam, they made some seriously inspirational sound that will make your hair stand up !..
"Music is seldom so inspiring and straight from the heart"
- Into The Great Wide Open -
Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness (BCUC) moves the audience – both physically and emotionally with an explosion of passion, funk and rhythm. With their music, straight from the ancestors BCUC wants to question the common worldview on modern Africa.
BCUC takes the audience along on an intriguing journey to the secret world of modern Africa. They want to rectify western assumptions and show the South Africa from after apartheid from a young, contemporary, different perspective. Mandela and Tutu are not their heroes. Mandela is a millionaire, a shameless fundraiser and Tutu a spy. In eleven languages BCUC discusses the harsh reality of Africa where especially the unemployed worker forever stays at the bottom of the food chain. And also they tap into the elusiveness of the spirit world of ancestors that fascinates them. Africa portrayed by BCUC is not poor at all, but rich in tradition, rituals and believe.
“We see ourselves as modern freedom fighters who have to tell the story of Soweto’s past, present and future to the world”
- Jovi Nkosi, singer of BCUC -
Highlights of BCUC’s musical journey are performances at Gentse Feesten (Belgium), Festival Mundial Tilburg and Melkweg Amsterdam (Netherlands). BCUC was selected as one of the finalists by a panel of Tony Allen (drummer Fela Kuti) and others at AfricaUnsigned.com. Africa Unsigned supports African unsigned musicians to record music funded by fans.
