Bamboo Band is one of my Favourite Music

Bamboo Band is one of my favourite music. Above are my photos with the Saban group performing at one of the fund raising dinner held in Kuala Lumpur.

Bamboo band instruments comprise flutes and bass. The girls will play the flutes while the boys the basses. The bamboo for these instruments are taken from the nearby forest and after being cut, will be dried in the sun for a few days to get the green colour out. Then the bamboo for the flutes are bored accordingly using red hot nail.The notes can follow standard pitch etc. The basses comprise of different sizes based on what notes it is for.
