Mr. Bongo

From humble beginnings in the London basement of Daddy Kool’s reggae shop on Berwick Street, Mr Bongo is now seen as the standard bearer for Latin music outside the Americas. With regular imports from Latin America, Cuba and the USA to our store, we brought the Latin and Brazilian sound to discerning listeners across Europe, establishing a core interest which has since gone from strength to strength. Championed by characters such as Gilles Peterson and clubs like Dingwall’s in the late 1980’s, Mr Bongo soon began to establish itself as the leader and provider for the whole scene.
