Big Cheese Groove The Bongolian Outer Bongolia
Funky bongo action. Nasser Bouzida, better known as The Bongolian, is undoubtedly a verycreative man. Formerly with Big BossMan, not the wrestler, Nasser has created a psychedelic funk/dance albumthat features absolutely no samples.He’s particularly well known for hisbongo playing abilities and thismulti-instrumentalist wrote, arranged,performed and produced tie album byhimself. Which, given the amount ofinstrumentation used on this album, is quite impressive. But it has to be saidthat the bongos take centre stage here.Although it may seem like it novelty, itactually works quite well. The relativelack of vocals really pushes the bongosto the fore, while the use of Hammond organ and keyboards give it a slightlycheesy, retro sci-fi feel.
