The best kept secret in music


"Imagine Santana jamming with.."

"Imagine Santana jamming with Soul II Soul and Bob Marley and you're starting to get the idea.. Like just about every band, Bambu is supposed to sound better live than on CD, and on CD they sound really, REALLY good." - Greg Glasgow, Daily Camera - Boulder, Co

"World Visionary Six-Piece"

"Bambu, the multi-cultural, world visionary six-piece, out of Iowa City, Iowa of all places, promises to make you see. See a world of music, of connection, of unity, of a formulated recipe for a dancing good time... Energy is the key that unleashes their individual talent to diverse oneness as musicians. Their CD, as powerful as it is, does not even come close to the live performance Bambu displays." - Lori Brookhart - muzicom magazine

"Pretty Damn Infectious"

"Bambu delivers a unique, airy blend of musics guaranteed to keep yer movin' parts janglin' and juices flowing... the bubbly duet 'Like the Sun' is a pretty damn infectious workout, as is the high stepping 'Bambu Jam'." - Jim Musser, ICON - Iowa City, IA

"Wham, Bambu, thank you band!"

"Wham, Bambu, thank you band!" - Kyle Munson - Des Moines Register

"Original soul-driving dance rhythms"

"Pulsing with reggae, urban and rock colors.. weaved with messages of harmony for ourselves, our hearts and our world. The unique 'psychotropic world-beat' of Bambu will make you feel and move in mystical ways!" - Fairfield Weekly Reader

Innovative styles combine to blow your perception of reality, December 10, 2000
Reviewer: Dusty L. (Colorado) - See all my reviews
Reality after owning this CD will change for the better. Happiness is the most significant emotion this music creates and you will not be disappointed with this CD. Every song on the album is a bit different and makes for the entire CD an excellent listen. It kind of takes you on a journey too.. smoothly taking off, rocketing into never-never land and then gently landing you back on Mother Earth. Best money I ever spent on a CD!!

Great music for the body and soul!, June 21, 2000
Reviewer: Kathy (USA) - See all my reviews
Bambu mixes rhythms from Latin America and the Caribbean, melodies from jazz and rock, and words straight from the heart and soul. The result is music that makes your body move and your spirit soar. It's not often you find GREAT dance music that speaks of unity in the human family. World beat at it's best!

Relative Space CD


Feeling a bit camera shy


What happens when you bring together a vocalist from Kingston Jamaican, a New York pop and jazz vocal legend (the Cake and Nightflight), a Jersey born psychedelic guitar afficionado, a vocalist/ percussionist from Argentina, a prog rock funkateer bass player from Ohio, a midwest drummer who travelled to Cuba to enhance his already significant world beat chops, and a west coast keyboard player...and put them in, of all places, Iowa? You get Bambu... music guaranteed to lift your spirit and command you to move your feet and all your other body parts. Bambu has played extensively throughout the midwest...Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and Colorado and opened for Everclear, Ekoostik Hookah, Jazz Mandolin Project, Liquid Soul, the Meditations and the Itals
