But we realised that there are two…

Launching the #ListenToSing Series

The Chinese Bamboo Tree and You Do you realise that you and the Chinese Bamboo Tree have a lot in common? Yes, that’s right. The Chinese Bamboo Tree shows no outward growth for the initial 3-4 years.

And it does just that for F.O.U.R years…
