The Bongolian

While still writing and performing with Big Boss Man, multi-instrumentalist Nasser Bouzida, (or just Nass to you and me), disappeared into the studio to create a brand new sound in the name of his new alter ego The Bongolian. As The Bongolian, Nasser takes us on a solo musical journey through heavy Funk and Latin Soul writing, performing and recording all the material himself in the process. And for a young man whoseprincipal interests are drums and percussion being The Bongolian makes a whole lotta sense.

Big Boss Man

Big Boss Man are a four piece band hailing from Newbury in Berkshire, and are the hottest news to come out of the area since the bypass got the go ahead. Their music is a hip Hammond hybrid of Pop, 60's R'n'B/Latin/Soul and Funk. The band formed in early 1999, signing to Blow Up in the Autumn of the same year. Having already played together in various bands and being old friends, the guys thought it made more than a little sense to put their heads together to form a suitably funked up outfit that reflected their shared love of original dance music flavours.
