Pamba

The story about project/band PAMBA begins in early March 1999 in Kovacica (Vojvodina, Serbia), when brothers Lenhart - Stevan (bass guitar, analogue synthesizer) and Vladimir (guitar, analogue synthesizer) spontaneously started playing and recording sessions in a dark room with thick walls. The room was a part of their grandparents' old house, which no longer exists. Playing analogue synthesizer and guitar, duet began to create the sound that could be described as a mix of impulses they've got from their surroundings with the inspiration they've got from the work of bands and musicians like Faust, Can, Einsturzende Neubauten, Swans - to name a few.

This material, recorded in one week, appeared on their first release: The Light Behind.

The same year Pamba recorded a 4-track EP called Hectic featuring the occasional third member Želimir Barca, who played guitar in one composition and did one remix-track. In September 1999, Pamba did a session recording with Saa arevi (now APOKATASTAZIS; ex Amon Din, ex Claustrum) from the city of Valjevo. The result is a heavy improvisation project called DINPAMBAMON and its tape release titled Space Noiseteque.

In June of 2000, Stevan and Vladimir recorded some new material, but it was never released. In April 2001, Pamba played first live gig, in rented room in Kovacica, in front of friends. In December 2001, Pamba played live in Belgrade (Klub nove muzike, Dom omladine), as a guest of postrock band FONOGRAF (from Belgrade). In March 2002, Pamba collaborated with Croatian noise artist Igor Mihovilović (KARMAKUMULATOR, GIHT SHASIE) from Croatia and Ivan Jasiković (INSECT HUMAN, TEUFELSTURM) from Belgrade. The result is heavy improvisation / noise session material titled Road to Japan and the project ZEN FOG.

In March 2003, Pamba did some thematic music for dramatic performance Knives In Hens by amateur theatre Scene VHV from Kovačica.

After the live gig in August 2003, the new album Rural Esoteric was finally recorded, this time with a rhythm machine and featuring two new occasional members - Ivana Veresky (metal percussions) and Ján olnaj (sound effects). In the following years, Pamba was mainly presenting the album Rural Esoteric on a couple of live shows and through its own DIY label Black Syrup Recordings.

In Spring 2007, Pamba played at noise festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia.



Projekat Pamba je nastao 1999. godine u Kovačici, kada su Vladimir Lenhart (klavijature, gitara) i Stevan Lenhart (bas gitara) zajednički počeli sa muzičkim istraživanjem u okviru ambient, noise i free improvisation žanrova. Posle sviračkog iskustva u svom prethodnom noisy crossover bendu Pessimist, inspirisani ruralnom okolinom svog rodnog mesta i muzikom bendova poput Can, Faust, Einstürzende Neubauten ili Swans, počinju sa beleženjem sopstvenog materijala, a prvi rezultat je dugosvirajuće izdanje The Light Behind, posle kojeg je usledio mini album Hectic.

Prvi snimljeni materijal je naznačio stilski izraz, kojeg će se Pamba držati ubuduće, a to je zvuk koji se kreće između instrumentalne repeticije i slobodne improvizacije uz značajne uplive noise elemenata. Godine 2001. Pamba svira uživo, najpre pred ograničenim brojem ljudi u iznajmljenom prostoru u Kovačici, zatim kao gosti grupe Fonograf u Klubu Doma omladine u Beogradu.

Godine 2003. Pamba snima muziku za pozorišnu predstavu Nože v sliepkach (u originalu Knives In Hens) u izvođenju amaterske pozorišne Scene VHV iz Kovačice.

U međuvremenu se duetu priključuje Ivana Vereski kao perkusionista, sledi nastup na Kovačičkoj manifestaciji alternativnih reakcija (KOMAR) u avgustu 2003. zajedno sa bendovima Miris Klia iz Rume i Demencija Prekoks iz Požarevca. Posle toga Pamba snima novi materijal pod nazivom Rural Esoteric. Kao povremeni član, bendu se priključuje Jan Žolnaj, koji svira perkusije na koncertu u Pančevu u novembru 2003.

Članovi Pambe su ostvarili saradnju sa Sašom arčevićem (Amon Din, Valjevo), sa kojim su realizovali projekat DinPambAmon, kao i sa Igorom Mihovilovićem (Karmakumulator, Split), sa kojim povremeno deluju u okviru sporednog projekta Zen Fog.

Pamba je 2004. godine održala tri koncerta – sa Justice Yeldham and his Dynamic Ribbon Device (SKC, beograd), sa kovačičkom grupom Neurocream (ekskurzija festivala GRRR!), i još jednom sa grupom Neurocream i grupom Bezimena u Banatskom Novom Selu. 2005 godine je imala legendarni zajednički koncert sa grupom Zemlja broj 9 na Akademiji, i sa tog koncerta će se neke pesme pojaviti na novom izdanju koje za sada ima radni naziv Vamped & Twisted. Pored ovih live numera na cd-u će se naći i remiksi pesama grupe Pamba sa Prvog albuma koje su radili D’Jozigboj i DJ Vrhovny.

U proleće 2007, Pamba je svirala na noise festivalu u Ljubljani.
