Mr Bongo

Mr Bongo has committed to reducing its carbon footprint with The Planet Mark

Mr Bongo started life in 1989 as a small record shop underneath Daddy Kool’s Reggae Store on Berwick Street in London. And at the time, were the first shop to sell vinyl releases from independent hip hop labels such as Def Jam, Rawkus, Nervous and Big Beat outside of the USA. It has since become an established bearer for hard-to-find, classic Latin music, particularly Brazilian, outside of the Americas.
