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 have been announced as 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 Los Angeles Hip Hop champions People Under The Stairs, Oregon jazz juggernauts Young Blood Brass Band and the BBC Gorwelion Horizons stage at SWN Festival 2015, Cardiff. 

They have received recent recognition from BBC Radio Wales heavyweights Bethan Elfyn and Adam Walton, BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson and Craig Charles in 2015 and 2016. They also feature as part of Adam Walton’s ‘Best of 2015’ playlist.
