Have you bought Bambu's new album, ... one rifle per family yet? Well even if you have, here's a remix to the album cut "So Many" that you're gonna wanna peep. "'So Many' is the latest single off rifle per family. This is the remix with a full verse from Roscoe Umali. A pro-Filipino party song produced by ESTA, this is a song that highlights the Filipino-American culture and ties it's roots to the history and culture of the Philippine motherland. Bambu is currently on the road on The Rent Money Tour with Kixxie Siete and Rey Resurreccion. Catch them in San Francisco on October 18th at 330 Ritch! "  To go along with the audio experience, watch a brief video covering the third verse of the song, get details on that after the jump.

The video was shot in the tenements of Tondo in Manila in the summer of 2012. Tondo is one of the poorest and most underdeveloped places in the world and the people who live there struggle for their basic needs -- all the while, a few miles away in Makati, big businesses/corporations thrive secondary to allowances made by the Philippine government that provide them the tax breaks and legislative lenience to continue exploiting the people and resources of the Philippines.
