FREE DOWNLOAD: New Bambu Track from "A Song For Ourselves" Mixtape

The homie Tadashi Nakamura is at it again with the release of his third documentary, A Song For Ourselves. The film documents the life of musician/song writer Chris Iijima, whose music provided the soundtrack for the Asian American movement of the sixties.

Tad got DJ Phatrick to put together a mixtape featuring the Chris Iijimas of our generation - Asian American musicians who are creating the score of our lives and struggles. The mixtape will include music by Blue Scholars, Bambu, Kiwi, and Senz of Depth, and will feature unreleased tracks that sample Chris Iijima's original recordings. Tad asked me to flip a Chris Iijima track, so hopefully I'll have a spot on there too.

The downloadable track below is called "When Will The Time Come." It samples the song "Jonathan Jackson" by A Grain of Sand (Chris Iijima's band). Bambu is on the vocals and Will Bracey is on the beat.
