Throwback: Incredible Bongo Band – Bongo Rock

Bongo Band

Incredible Bongo Band’s Bongo Rock birthed Hip Hop, just ask DJ Kool Herc who was inspired by the Apache breakbeat and used it at his parties in the late 70s. This album has been sampled hundreds, if not thousands of times by countless modern day musicians. Just one example, In a Gadda Da Vida was notoriously sampled on “Hip Hop Is Dead” by Nas.
