Tonight is the first presentation of the newest band to enter the Chicago world’s music scene: Nu Bambu. This is a bilingual, street-smart band that has cutting-edge lyrics with a twist that fuse together different styles such as rumba and reggae. The sounds of Nu Bambu are as diverse as our cross-cultural musicians, who come from Jamaica, France, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Puerto Rico, Cuba and the United States. Strong Latin and Reggae flavors, pitch-bending trumpet and potent bass and drum lines give the songs a unique progressive flavor along with conscious-raising, bilingual thought- provoking lyrics that morphs into hip cutting-edge music for a new generation. This musical fusion is very contagious and rhythmic, so be ready to dance when listening to our songs.
