Bambú Station represents roots reggae.

Sampler

The U.S. Virgin Islands’ thriving roots rocking reggae scene have produced several great talents in the past ten years with trail blazers Midnite and their front man, singer and lyricist Vaughn Benjamin leading the way.

Bambu Station - Children Of ExodusBambú Station is another powerful band from the same group of islands. The band’s founder, lead singer and lyricist Jalani Horton hails from St. Thomas, and was in 1999 joined by bass player Andy Llanos and guitarist Tuff Lion. Their debut recording was Amadou Diallo, a heartfelt tribute to the Guinean immigrant who died in a hail of police bullets in New York City 13 years ago.

'Children of Exodus' is Bambú Station’s fourth full-length studio album, and follows their six years old 'Breaking the Soil'. The album has the same laid-back atmosphere and is full of bubbly and natural riddims mesmerizing the listener.

Jalani Horton’s singing is accompanied by beautiful and well-arranged harmonies that uplift his mostly tough themed and insightful lyrics.

The album contains 16 cuts, of which two are short interludes and one a two minute tale of Bambú Station’s vision and mission set only to bass and percussion.

The partly acoustic All We Have is the most alluring moment of the album and sets a perfect tone to a bonfire at the beach.

The Virgin Islands offer way more than the relentless roots from Midnite, and Bambú Station is a great example of the many mighty talented musicians coming from this musically blessed group of islands.
