Rebellious, spiritual, and exhilarating, BCUC ’s live shows are transcendent rites of explosive sound. Following in the pulses of their ancestors, they awaken crowds to the power of a shared, fairer future. Their dancefloor Afro-futurism heals and commands in propulsive jams that rebalance bodies and souls.
Says lead singer Jovi: “Since 2003 we have wanted to be a band that would change the way people think about music from Africa. 18 years later we are still on the mission to use music as a vehicle to maneuver and negotiate the storms of human relations for the purpose of better understanding across colors, social issues and locations.”
BCUC has released a trilogy of albums: Our Truth (2016), Emakhosini (2018) and The Healing (2019), capturing the power of their live show with its ebbs and flows and free form song cycles. With The Healing came dream collaborations with legendary Nigerian saxophonist Femi Kuti and American poet Saul Williams.
