Emmac......you don't say what size or in what your Bamboo was delivered. If it had been in transit for a number of days, it would have probably required a good watering on receipt.
At this time of year, your bamboo should still be fresh and green leaved. If it is only a young plant, it may take time for the stems to turn the black colour you expect but it should certainly look alive
I would advise you to contact your supplier if you are still concerned after 2 weeks that the plant isn't thriving.
Hope this helps
