Rådhusplassen: Main Stage 20:00
- Funk, rhythm and passion with political undertones
BCUC (Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness) brings its unique Afro-psychedelic sound from Soweto to Rådhusplassen. The combination of energetic performances and uncompromising music – influenced by the traditions of their forefathers, hip-hop, punk-rock and 70s and 80s jazz traditions – has made them an international talking point. Their engaging lyrics give voice to the voiceless and make an honest attempt to break down Western worldviews and instead present a modern look at post-apartheid South Africa. Or as vocalist Kgomotso Mokone puts it: "We bring fun and emo-indigenous Afro psychedelic fire from the hood".
