now playing Friday Reloop

Mr Bongo

First broadcast date: 17 January 2017

Long time record aficionados Mr Bongo pay us a visit from their spanking new store sunny Brighton on the South coast of Sussex, UK. Providers of the finest in World music and films since 1989, Mr Bongo have ridden the rise and fall of analogue music and have remained on top.

Having started life in Venezuela over 30 years ago, Mr Bongo’s humble mission of bringing Latin records back to Europe soon expanded into a nomadic dance mission, bringing Brazilian, Latin, African, Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Psychedelic flavours to dance floors across the US and Europe.

Catch them playing Mr Bongo releases, such as Ronaldo Reseda, Zani Diabaté, Majo and Nonato Buzar, alongside old favourites and current finds.
