Bamboo, recently re-releases his debut album No Water No Moon with a brand new single “Carousel”, last April 24, 2013 at the media night held at Cerchio Grill and Lounge, Tomas Morato, QC.
“Carousel”, produced and written by Manalac, features a pulsating and anthemic drum beat along with haunting vocals that Manalac is known for. While the song was recorded by Manalac in Manila, final mastering was done in California by Brad Blackwood at Euphonic Masters as well as the other songs in the album. The song was launched on radio in April 22 and expected to release its music video soon.
Bamboo reminisces of his youth and past experiences with music. He was with a band before, but he’s now on a solo. It’s been two years now and he has change. He was so shy, quite and has been a private person.
Bamboo is doing collaboration with other writers and singers. He said that it’s “the best part of this journey.” It is now being “happy” with the project, using orchestras and different instruments.
Teamed with some of the top musicians in the music industry like Ria Osorio, Kakoy Legaspi, Jun Jun Regalado, Bong Gonzales and Simon Tan— Manalac is now a regular performer at the ABS CBN’s Sunday concert show ASAP and gearing up as a mentor/judge for the upcoming premiere of THE VOICE in the Philippines to be aired on ABS CBN this coming June. Globe Telecoms also introduced Bamboo Mañalac as the ambassador of Tattoo@Home early this year.
“It (Carousel) speaks of inspiration and finding oneself by going back. As the refrain starts “remember before….rush hour…” and that once you do open that door it’s a hard thing to close. And that “home” for me isn’t a place but it’s me finding meaning in what I do what drives me to dare, be confident and continuing to look for that spark… and that is home.” – Bamboo Manalac
