DOWNLOAD: BAMBU – “WHEN WILL THE TIME COME?”

This song is part of a mixtape I’m working on right now for Tad Nakamura’s newest documentary A Song For Ourselves and the premiere of it in LA on Feb. 28 featuring performances from Blue Scholars, Bambu, and Kiwi.

The film documents the life of Chris Iijima, a Japanese American musician, activist, educator, and father, who’s music was the soundtrack for the Asian American movement in the late 60s, early 70s.

For the mixtape, I’m arranging Chris’s music along with Blue Scholars, Bambu, Kiwi, and Native Guns songs, interwoven with sound bites from the movie. We’re also doing exclusive remixes which sample Chris’s music and feature verses from Geo, Bam, and Kiwi. “When Will The Time Come?” is the first of these to be recorded. The beat is produced by Will Bracy (Oakland producer and former student of mine), and samples “Jonathan Jackson” by Chris and his fellow A Grain Of Sand members, Nobuko Miyamoto and Charlie Chin. When Bam heard it, he wrote the whole song in one hour.

The mixtape drops late January.
