Description

Døre kl 19 / koncert kl 20
Bemærk: Koncerten foregår i Pumpehuset


Overgiv dig til trancen når BCUC fra Soweto, Sydafrika, fylder Pumpehuset med funkede grooves, galloperende percussion og politiske budskaber til oktober.


At den afro-psykedeliske septet BCUC holder til i et blomstrende DIY-område et stenkast fra kirken, hvor Desmond Tutu organiserede flugten for de mest eftersøgte anti-apartheid-aktivister i Soweto, Sydafrika, virker ikke tilfældigt. BCUC ser selv deres musik som hedonistisk trance, men også som et våben til politisk og spirituel befrielse i tråd med tidligere generationers kamp for retfærdighed.


BCUCs musik lyder på en gang nutidig og oprindelig; hård, selvsikker og bestyrkende. Den er spækket med funkede grooves og hiphop-sensibilitet, men også repetitive bas-riffs, fløjter og galoperende percussion, som en ukuelig hyldest til tidligere generationers håb og kampgejst. Gruppen synger og chanter højlydt om de barske realiteter for fattige arbejdstagere i Sydafrika, men samtidig er landet, som det portrætteres af BCUC, ikke fattigt, men rigt på tradition, ritualer og tro. Når BCUC spiller live hiver de publikum med helt ind i trancen. Og har man en gang set en koncert med gruppen, glemmer man det ikke. Siden deres debutalbum “Our Truth” i 2016 og opfølgeren “The Healing” (2019), som Fela Kutis søn Femi Kuti i øvrigt medvirker på, har de fanget publikums opmærksomhed på festivaler og spillesteder verden over. Eksempelvis har BCUC hele tre gange gjort en hel Roskilde-skare til jublende fans, senest på årets festival. Gå ikke glip af en stor aften, når ALICE præsenterer dem i Pumpehuset til oktober.

In English


Surrender to the trance when BCUC from Soweto, South Africa, fills Pumpehuset with funky grooves, pumping percussion and political messages this October.


A stone’s throw from the church where Desmond Tutu organised the escape of the most wanted anti-Apartheid activists of Soweto, BCUC rehearses in a shipping container-turned-community area, where their indomitable outspokenness echoes in a whole new way. Like its elders, BCUC sees its music as a hedonistic trance, but also as a weapon of political and spiritual liberation.


The music of BCUC sounds modern and indigenous, confident and empowering at the same time. It is filled with funky grooves and a hip hop consciousness next to repetitive, mellow bass riffs, flutes and masses of pumping percussion as a tribute to past generations. The group sings and chants out loud about the tough reality of the poor workers of South Africa. Yet the Africa portrayed by BCUC is not poor, but rich in tradition, rituals and beliefs. If you have once experienced BCUC live, you’ll never forget it. Since their debut album “Our Truth” from 2016 and also the following album “The Healing” (2019) featuring Femi Kuti, they have caught the attention of the audience wherever they've been playing at festivals and venues all over the world. They’ve turned the audience at Roskilde Festivals into cheering fans three times already, the latest at this year's festival. Don’t miss the great chance to see them at Pumpehuset this October.
