BAMBARA is a storm. Recalling the brooding filth of early Swans, The Birthday Party, and the pummeling energy of The Jesus Lizard or Iceage. BAMBARA uses their signature vocal-noise collages to create an unsettling, visceral experience.
Although BAMBARA only formed in Athens, Georgia in late 2008, the three boys grew up together. Twin brothers Reid and Blaze Bateh and childhood friend William Brookshire have been consistently making music and playing shows together since they were in the 7th grade. The band then moved to Brooklyn in 2011 to further pursue making music.
