Mr Bongo

Mr Bongo began life as a hugely influential record store in Soho, London, in 1989, firstly in Berwick Street before finally ending up in Poland Street (it closed several years ago). They specialised in hip hop and Latin music but, as a record label, it’s in the Latin field that they have excelled, as well as releasing an enormous number of Japanese productions, particularly on its sub-label Disorient. As well as the many Brazilian and Latin releases (both reissues and modern productions), they’ve released several albums by legendary Chicago singer/songwriter Terry Callier, and reissued classic albums by the likes of Doris and Banda Black Rio.
