Messenger Sound System, the original roots advertiser, consistently programmes the heights of conscious reggae music, dub-wise and otherwise!  Crazy to think now that it first started in Edinburgh back in 1987 and that it’s been keeping the fires burning, every month, at the Bongo for two thirds of that time.  That’s 30, THIRTY, years at the heart of Edinburgh’s reggae scene, and 20 years here at the Bongo!

Mumbo Jumbo is a night with a mix of musical styles from funk and hip hop to house and electro care of resident DJs Trendy Wendy (The Street) and Steve Austin (Headspin).  There’s also live congas and percussion by Bongo Dave and rotating guests from the local circuit upstairs.  Mumbo Jumbo joins-the-dots between the genres, all sprinkled with character and liberal helpings of cracking vocals!  This is Saturday night party music at its best!

We’re immensely excited here at the Bongo to be welcoming a DJ from the Far East to our stage. This doesn’t happen very often (we can’t actually remember when it last happened) and we’re especially pleased....
