Bamboo Mañalac Bio
Bamboo Mañalac was a Filipino American musician and singer-songwriter. He was born on 21 March 1975 in Quezon City, Philippines.
He was born to Filipino parents. Mañalac’s family immigrated to San Francisco, California when he was ten years old and spent the rest of his childhood there.
Mañalac named after a combination of his grandfathers’ names and coincidentally after his home city. His mother gave him the nickname “Bamboo” when he was still a kid.
Mañalac started his career as a vocalist and original frontman of Rivermaya and later fronted his band, Bamboo. In 2011, the Bamboo band disbanded and he pursued a solo career and released his first solo album, No Water, No Moon.
In November 2011, Mañalac released his debut album, No Water, No Moon, under the label of PolyEast Records. The collection consists of 12 tracks with “Questions” as its carrier single.
The album reached gold record in February 2013 after selling more than 7,500 copies.
In January 2012, Mañalac joined ASAP as a mainstay cast and a performer in the show.
ABS-CBN aired a promotional plug during the airtime of the pre-primetime television drama Kahit Konting Pagtingin, confirming Bamboo Mañalac’s stint in The Voice of the Philippines as coach and judge.
In an interview made by ABS-CBN News, Mañalac provided a statement regarding his stint on the show, “I’m ready to be a coach. There’s a time for everything, and this is it.”
Bamboo, alongside Sarah Geronimo, and Lea Salonga returned as coaches for The Voice Kids Philippines from 2014 to present.

Bamboo Mañalac Dead or Live
on 27 November, a website post an article with the title “Bamboo Mañalac shot dead in a car crash in Quezon.” Along with the headline, they have attached a video that can only be viewed once you share it!
It appears to be fake, and they are doing it to get views and shares on their website. Such in-humanitarian things are being practised this day so often, and it’s a shame.

Creating hoax about a living person’s death is ugly, let alone the fact that they do it just for views.
For all of Bamboo’s fans, we request you not to share the video and not to increase the view of that site; as it only motivates them to do such things in the future as well.
It's hard to accept that one of the best vocalist or one of the most singer in the industry of OPM is now dead paalam.
Bamboo Mañalac! R.I.P

We couldn’t reach out to Bamboo at the moment, however, can confirm that he hasn’t been in any accidents.
