Iphupho L’ka Biko
Iphupho L’ka Biko was established in 2015 by Nhlanhla Ngqaqu, who is the bassist, composer and arranger of the band. Fundamentally, we seek to glorify God the Creator of all things, God the beginner of all beginnings through our music, for without Him we are nothing. Urgently, we seek to decolonize the black mind with our message, a message that strongly opposes racism, afrophobia, xenophobia and all other kinds of oppression that the black human being, particularly, has to face in this present world. Essentially, our music seeks to reflect the times that we live in. As a band we believe that through truth and by making peace, we as the human race can find ourselves living in a system that will allow justice, equality and freedom to reign from generation to generation.
