We Got It Goin on
The Bamboula rhythm from Africa, the Caribbean and Congo Square has evolved over 400 years to become the rhythm of New Orleans, now known as the second-line. Bamboula 2000 take this syncopation and creates a musical tapestry that connects traditions and fuses them with the 21st century. The 12 songs on this groundbreaking disc take us on a journey through the depths of our musical souls. 'I Ye' Bamboula', 'Lucky 7' and 'Saint Malo' provide the drumming foundation that the rest of the disc floats upon. 'The Sound of My Soul', 'You are Love' and 'Moments in Love' takes those rhythms and fuse them with jazz melodies. 'Crazy Game' offers old school R&B to the gumbo. 'Big Round World' and 'The Imagination Tour' look at the world from a child's point of view thanks to the song writing contributions of children music superstars, 'Trout Fishing in America'. 'Bring It Now', 'Better Place' and the title song, 'We Got It Going On' utilize New Orleand funk to offer optimism, inspiration and solutions necessary to overcome the difficulties life brings. Bamboula 2000 has been on this journey for over 16 years. The music, dance and cultural education experienced in their live shows and 'The Imagination Tour: drum and dance workshops have inspired thousands. This latest CD, 'We Got It Goin' On' brings all of these elements together and demonstrate in this fast changing time why the group and this CD matter!
