Bamboo Bonsai is the solo project of Brisbane multi-instrumentalist Yusuf Memon. Since infancy, music has been the outlet for Memon’s inherent, prolific creativity with him learning drums and piano from a young age. However, it was at age 15,when he first picked up the guitar, that his passion for music skyrocketed. Shortly after, a preemptive writing process would start, and what would eventually result in Bamboo Bonsai began, though Memon certainly travelled through many different musical phases to reach it.
Now with a clear direction, Bamboo Bonsai takes a modern twist on existing psychedelic sounds, drawing inspiration from modern psychedelic and funk acts such as Khruangbin, Tame Impala, TOY and The Holydrug Couple; and older acts such as Jimi Hendrix and Aged In Harmony.
Bamboo Bonsai is excited to be releasing their newest single, ‘Toxic Human,’ on June 6th of this year. The single follows previous releases ‘Trapped in a Cage (And I Want to Get Out)’ and ‘Air,’ each exemplifying Memon’s unique and refreshing contributions to psychedelia. Be sure to keep up to date with Bamboo Bonsai as they reinvent the genre with their unbounded creativity and musical prowess.
