Mr Bongo

LONDON Spiritland King's Cross
9 - 10 Stable St, Kings Cross


It began in Venezuela 30 years ago – filling suitcases with amazing Latin records to bring back to Europe. And it continued ever since; private warehouse visits in the US, dusty back street basements in South America, houses and garages in Africa, and lesser-known spots in Europe and Asia. Mr Bongo bring eclectic and unexpected Brazilian, Latin, pan-African, jazz, soul, reggae and psychedelic flavours to the dance-floor with a seemingly bottomless stock of weird and wonderful selections. They join us at Spiritland King's Cross for a joyous Friday night after curating our album club for the week previous.

EFG LJF and Spiritland come together to showcase the very finest jazz music-loving selectors on unique Spiritland sound systems. Join for dinner - book a table via

'Selectors from one of the best record labels in the UK playing records on one of the best sound systems in the UK, what could be better?'
