“[An] energetic, unique and magic formula; the voices of their ancestors, mixed with funk, punk-rock vibrations, hip-hop, Fela-inflections and much more.” —BBC Radio
Having royally shaken up South African music with their powerful blend of “Africangungungu” (the name BCUC has given to its Afro-psychedelic mix of a cappella street music, funk, soul, hip-hop, and rock-and-roll), the seven-piece Soweto-based collective is ready to rock Minneapolis audiences for the first time. With their stirring harmonies and vibrant energy, BCUC has been proclaimed the new sound of South Africa, mesmerizing global audiences with ecstatic performances. The beat never stops as BCUC generates a timeless sound, connecting ancestral traditions and histories to the spirituality and future of the people.
