MANILA, Philippines — Original Pilipino Music (OPM) icon Bamboo Mañalac felt nostalgic during rehearsals of Rivermaya's highly-anticipated reunion concert on February 17. 

In a report by ABS-CBN News, Bamboo said memories bring back while they are rehearsing with bandmates Rico Blanco, Mark Escueta and Nathan Azarcon.

“It is just playing the music again, hearing us sing together, you know what I mean? Just those memories rush back,” he said.

“We always say let’s not look too far back. Let’s keep focusing on what is going to happen right now. I have been happy and surprised," he added. 

Bamboo promised concertgoers that they will enjoy the show that they prepared. 

“I am looking forward to playing on the 17th,” he said. 

“It is a big thing, it is a milestone,” he added. 

Bamboo, Nathan, Mark and Rico, together with Perf de Castro, were the original members of Rivermaya that rose to fame in 1994. 

Perf left the band in 1995 after their first album. Bamboo followed suit in 1998 while they were touring America and Canada. 

Rico took charge and continued making hit songs with the band until 2007. 

Rivermaya remains active, with Nathan returning and Mark staying with the band.
