About

Afro Cluster are a Cardiff based band citing Fela Kuti, Snarky Puppy, Ozomatli, The Roots & Talking Heads amongst their influences.

Together with front man MC Skunkadelic, they meld authentic sounds and rhythms of afro-funk and hip-hop with impassioned, politically conscious lyrics atop bold melodies, afro-beat aural acrobatics, rich harmonies and complex rhythms.

Changes to the line up in 2015 refined the focus and determination of the band to establish themselves at the forefront of the UK hip hop scene.

Afro Cluster are one of the Horizons 12 acts for 2016/2017 (a collaboration between BBC Wales & the Arts Council of Wales).

Notable high profile gigs include performances alongside the Hot 8 Brass Band, Los Angeles Hip Hop champions People Under The Stairs and Oregon jazz juggernauts Young Blood Brass Band. 

The’ve recently been building momentum, gaining recognition from BBC Radio Wales’ Bethan Elfyn, Adam Walton, BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson and Craig Charles. They were also part of Adam Walton’s ‘Best of 2015’ playlist.

Head to bbc.co.uk/introducing, upload your music and you could have your tracks broadcast on BBC RadioBethan Elfyn – “The lyrics are politically and socially charged, so it’s a band with head and heart in tune. A refreshing concept in this day and age.”

Tom Robinson – “What a great authentic sound this is; completely convincing.

Dean Hodge, AfterDark – “…smouldering soul-driven hip-hop.

Adam Walton – “…very very ace indeed.
