In 1989 a suitcase arrived in Europe from Venezuela filled with amazing Latin records. That case was the beginning of Mr Bongo – the record shop that became the Brighton-based label and publisher for some of the finest selections in Brazilian, Latin, African, Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Psychedelic flavours.
30 Years of Mr Bongo celebrates the wonderful history of Mr Bongo with a unique line-up: The Skints, Jungle Brown, Hollie Cook plus UK jazz favourites Moses Boyd Exodus in the main room; and in our foyer, two legendary UK turntablists, Mr Thing & DJ Format, plus Huw Bowles, spinning all night long.
We spoke to Graham Luckhurst, director of operations at Mr Bongo, to find out more.
