BONGOS FOR BEATNIKS the long-awaited 4th album from The Bongolian continues the musical journey where 2007’s Outer Bongolia left off, bringing us back down to Earth possibly via France circa 1967 via 2011, in a wildly eclectic rare groove fusion of Funk Soul Hammond Beat Jazz and a Sci-Fi Boogaloo.
The first single from the album ‘The Riviera Affair‘ was recently featured on BBC 6music Nemone’s Lunchtime Loves (alongside plays from Gideon Coe and Craig Charles) and was also Sky Sports Soccer AM’s track of the week.
