So Flute w/ Mr. Bongo Soundsystem & Residents on Friday 18th September 2015
For over 25 years, the Mr. Bongo label has been at the forefront of world music discovery & re-issues.
In 1989, Mr. Bongo Records opened its doors to the music world of London. The store specialised in Latin-Jazz, Bossa-Nova & African rarities and was the first store outside of the USA to sell independent hip-hop vinyl releases.
Their search for ultra rare and undiscovered records has seen the Mr. Bongo crew make regular digging trips to LA & New York and Rio De Janeiro, as well as to some of the most dangerous cities in the world in Caracas, Venezuela & Lagos, Nigeria.
Throughout London's early 90's Acid Jazz / Latin Jazz scene, Mr. Bongo was the label frequently responsible for supplying the records that allowed the scene to flourish. Often these records were 'broken' onto the wider scene by DJ's such as Gilles Peterson & Patrick Forge.
Whether it's reissuing Brazilian Holy Grails to fund the medical treatment of the original artist, travelling in armoured vehicles on the way to record stores in Caracas, or venuturing to Lagos for original Fela Kuti records to exchange with Masters at Work for some official remixes.. these guys have some amazing stories & even better records.
