Bambú Station was founded in 1996 by lead singer Jalani Horton, the culmination of a lifetime of love for music and the quest for sharing and enlightening through music and poetry. For two years Bambú Station played and toured regionally, developing a sound that was received with great enthusiasm by avid fans of the roots vibe. This encouraged the band to establish its own studio and later record its first album, Congo Moon, released on High Rotation Records in November 1999. The energy of the album led to one of its songs, Heathen Fun, being selected for use on a two-CD remix compilation entitled Walking on Pennsylvania Avenue, a major relief effort for children with AIDS released on the Open Source Record Label (www.open-source.com). In 2000, Bambú Station independently released the single Amadou Diallo in memory of the brutally slain New York West African. The single, which features a haunting acoustic approach and soul-reaching lyrics, was personally presented to his parents at the 2001 Anniversary of the March on Washington.

This groundbreaking album immediately hit worldwide charts, generating international praise...
