B.C.U.C. (Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness) to Perform in Berlin's Wassermusik Festival, 19 July 2019

The average B.C.U.C. song is over 15 minutes long and that alone says a lot, but not everything about the seven-member Soweto group. In fact, there’s plenty to say about their sweat-inducing punk energy, hypnotic bass lines, (nearly) endless percussive jams and distinctive call-and-response vocals. “Pop of the future” and “Africangungungu” is what Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness call the mixture invoking Fela Kuti and James Brown. But it also addresses social problems and has to be understood as a call to political participation. It would seem impossible to put all of this on a record, but they’ve already been successful three times. Yet B.C.U.C. are their most radical in concert; in direct communication between the band and audience.
