Bambulete, virtual percussion group     German


Bambulete - a virtual percussion group, established in 2010 - also presents the 43 Mhdb songs or standards with German spoken lyrics, but almost atonally & percussively, as well as entirely computer-generated. Bambulete are still virtually the non-identical Mhdb twin. In 2014, the Bambuelte sets 1-3 were created, the Bambulete sets 4-5 are still under construction. In the Bambulete songs, the German lead and backing vocals, as well as the lotus flute exist in reality. But wood blocks, timpani, agogo bells, taiko drums, birds, synthetic drums, drums and the Saturn are computer-generated or imitated reality. Song examples (mp3):
