In an age of hip-hop where the paradigm of swag over substance reigns supreme, few emcees are willing to use their platform to tackle the hot-button topics and pressing social maladies of our time - but it's apparent that Minneapolis-based hip-hop artist Brother Ali is one of those few. Brother Ali crafts a fresh lyrical approach and dynamic new sound--resulting in a stunning collection of hard-hitting lyrics and beats.
Bambu is a father, MC and community organizer. Raised in Los Angeles, as a young boy he experienced a life that other rappers have glorified, but rarely experienced. As he navigated through a turbulent youth, Bambu turned around the destructive energy that surrounded him and poured it into making music. Bambu has been lauded by his fans and contemporaries for his lyrical storytelling abilities. Whether fictional or autobiographical, his vividly-detailed narratives are characterized by an honesty that is equal parts brutal, thought-provoking and liberating. Bambu music is not for mere performance – he utilizes his music as a tool for a larger goal – to reach, support and ultimately organize youth to work toward social and systemic change. Bambu has reached audiences across the country and internationally with his explosive and engaging live performance -- especially significant are his sold out headline shows at notable venues in New York City (SOB's), San Francisco (Brick & Mortar) and Los Angeles (Viper Room, Knitting Factory, The Roxy and The Echo). Being paired on concert billings with such acts as Immortal Technique, Blue Scholars, Zion I, Psycho Realm, dead prez, Evidence, Atmosphere and Brother Ali, to name a few, has afforded Bambu the opportunity to garner fans from varying demographics. With a catalog of music stretching the span of ten-years, the Los Angeles emcee has allowed his fans to witness the growth of a gracefully honest artist, who truly embodies the sentiment of the people.
