COPUS is an award-winning, socially-conscious, creative ensemble known for their powerful poetics and riveting music.
👉 “When we think of Jazz, we think of communion of souls merging as one force to create one sound, the music of the spheres, the ever-present, everlasting OM. When we think of Hip Hop, we think of free form poetry, mature and muscular, intelligent and timeless. If we are able, we may imagine what could happen when those two realities come together. This is where COPUS lives.” ~Joe Kidd, Reviewer - Clouzine Magazine
👉 "Copus always creates a proactive musical message with substance and call to action. I applaud their auditory campaign for social change and quest to unite people during divisive times. We need more music groups like COPUS -- thoughtful and brilliant in their emphasis on equality, love, justice and peace -- their sound and poetics build, create and heal -- refreshingly rare nowadays." ~Daniel Yaryan, Poet/Producer - Sparring With Beatnik Ghosts
👉 "Great work. I need to compliment you on 2 things straight out of the gate. Firstly, the balance & harmony you've created between rapping & singing is so well done. Secondly, I really admire that you're creating your music around real issues, not like a lot of the bubblegum BS there is out there." ~Matt Ross, Instagram Influencer
👉 "Love it, Copus! You all rock! Timely! Blending magic and spiritual in this song with the challenges we face!"~Olga Osborne, Activist
