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. So expect an up beat Sonic Afro Attack on every level performed at the very highest level - Just know that this band are hot folks, and you will get down!

“Brilliant stuff and as catchy as a Nora virus, though far more pleasant.” (Paul Scott-Bates - Louder Than War)
