One of South Africa's most exciting new musical exports, BCUCBantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness is a hard-hitting, deep-grooving collective that turns Soweto Township–inspired percussion, bass, and vocals into rebellious and righteous dance music. The band takes inspiration from their ancestors to create their own version of dance-floor Afrofuturism filled with strong healing messages and propulsive jams that “bring punk-rock energy and hypnotic rhythms to social activism” (New York Times).

BCUC—Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness is part of Center Stage, a public diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, with funding provided by the U.S. Government, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations.
