SHAWN LEE'S TABLA ROCK. CLEAR VINYL. LTD EDITION OF 500.


The original Incredible Bongo Band's Bongo Rock is firmly cemented into musical history having provided the often sampled (and completely irresistible) “Apache” drum break for a million and one producers to cut up. Also known as Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band, the project was born in 1972.

Over 3 decades after its inception, UK producer and avid record collector, Shawn Lee was marveling at the fact that there had never been an Indian style, sitar and tabla-heavy, version of the Incredible Bongo Band masterpiece, "Apache". Lee decided he’d take on the entire Bongo Band debut album; and also two of his favorite tracks from their second album for good measure. “Why cover a song when you can cover a whole album? This is the road to madness my friend, and it is my preferred route!”

This LP is pressed on translucent vinyl and limited to 500 hand-numbered copies. Buy it here!
