Bamboo The Band
No band since the Beatles has generated as much recent interest as Bamboo. The winner of 2004 MTV Philippines Best New Artist, Best Group and Favorite Song for "Noypi," Bamboo is named after the frontman of the band, Bamboo Manalac from the Philippines.  The guitarist Ira Cruz goes on to say the name of the band has a deeper meaning, because the word "bamboo" also relates to strength and durability with an island feel to it.

Simple But Rock
July 3, 2009
 
Simple But Rock, this is the best way to describe the new music video from bamboo called "Muli" directed by Marie Jamora starring Teresa Herrera and Nick Padilla.
 
The video is all about the story of a guy who found a beautiful girl then suddenly he found out that the girl, who became his friend, has already a kid. The story is simple but has a sense. The video was great, even there is no appearance of the band (which is not good), people love it.
 
I just added it at the "Latest Single" section. Credits from Marie Jamora

An Update, A New Single
June 22, 2009
 

I was in the bus when I heard the new single of Bamboo called "Muli" From there latest album "As Tomorrow Becomes Yesterday" and I am surprise that they considered it to be a single, the song is great but it is just that there are better songs in the album like "Blown Away" or "Kalayaan". The song Muli, as we all known, was not written by the band but it was written by Epy Quizon which is a very close friend of the band.

 

When they released there album last year, many believers thought that “Kalayaan” will be the 2nd single, “Blown Away” or “Nobody Knows” will be the 3rd, and “Last days on a Cruise Ship” or “24/7” will be the 4th. Then suddenly Bamboo released there 2nd single which is “Last days on a Cruise Ship”, which is a great song by the way, and now they are releasing there 3rd single which is “Muli”.

 

I also notice some delay in releasing there single, is there really a delay or it is just me? I mean, the song “Kailan” was released last 2008, it is almost 1 year since then, and now they are just releasing there 3rd single.

 

Anyway, Bamboo is a great band, the best in the Philippines IMO. I just hope they will continue to create good music, I think they know it anyway. It is just that I, like many other people, feel slightly different when they released there very first single (Noypi) than today.

The Emancipation of Bamboo and Pinoy Rock
April 20, 2008
 
"Back in 1993… I knew what I would be… As the music plays the band, the band keeps playing the music." – Francisco "Bamboo" Maņalac could not have said it any better. He really knew what he wanted to be – a prophet like Muhammad or Mohammed if you wish. Such strong claim on his "personal mission" is magnified in Light Peace Love."

BODY TALK WITH BAMBOO
February 01, 2008
FUNFARE By Ricardo F. Lo (philstar)

They must have been separated at birth.

Bamboo is the flipside of Sen. Chiz Escudero and vice-versa. Their being lookalikes is mutually beneficial. Bamboo didn’t openly or officially endorse Chiz during the May elections last year but I’m sure a lot of Bamboo fans rooted — and voted — for Chiz.

But the intriguing question is: Did Bamboo vote for Chiz?

“I’m not gonna say who I voted for,” Bamboo begged off, in the same breath admitting that he was “flattered” by their “carbon-copy-ness” and recalling, “I think I saw him on TV during the election campaign in Cotabato, singing one of our songs.”

Perhaps, many people know him only as plain Bamboo and not by his kilometric full name — okay, now, take a deep breath: Francisco Gaudencio Lupe Belardo Maņalac. That includes...

BAMBOO's Latest Single:

KALAYAAN
 
Laid out and beat down
A modern classic
Here's the countdown
I tried to warn you of the dangers
But y'all just laugh out loud
Haha we're all just dying for the same dream
I pose the question
You answer shhh they may be following me

So I'll take you deep cover son
Recognizing the difficulty in this everyday situation
Only been here two days already asking for the pay day
Here we go back to pre-school 1-2-3 abc

Pwede bang malaman kung san patungo ang daang ito
Pwede ba, puwede ba
Sa gitna ng gulo

At ngayon tilay' malapit na ang kalayaan
Sa kuko na dala ang dilim eh bakit ako na'aaning
Tuwing humihiywa ang damdamin... ng salinlahi ko
Iisa ang tunog sa pulso at yapak ng kapwa ko siraulo

If you could only see
Right in front of me
I'll try to find
You a better view
Don't hold me back
I got my orders
I ain't waiting for the rush
Send in the next track

From the flames I'm reborn
A chance to free my soul
From the bottom locked down
A chance to free my soul
From the point of surrender
A chance to free my soul
Sure as the sun sets and rises
The story never gets old

So it's out of my hands now
The future's looking mighty and bright
How got people talking bout the rules of the game
Spark the change
Enjoy the rest of your motherfucking day
