BONGOS FOR BEATNIKS
Fourth album of retro bongo-driven groove fusion!
The Bongolian (the alter ego of multiinstrumentalist and Big Boss Man front man Nasser Bouzida) returns with a new record on respected '60s/Mod label (and famous club) Blow Up, and it's another psychedelic trip that you're going to love taking. A rhythmic. '60s sounding fusion of funk, soul, Hammond, synths and Boogaloo,
Bouzida plays all the instruments expertly and it's no surprise that tracks like the rousing 'The Clav Disco', the blissful 'Tortoise' and the aptly titled 'Hippy Trippy' will appeal to fans of dance and hip-hop as much as collectors of old funk and soul records. 'Bongos For Beatniks' proves that the bongo is a versatile instrument that can be used to make cool, retro music that oozes funk fun. With live shows lined up for the
year, The Bongolian is an experience you need to witness.
