Sharpen your senses; prepare to open your heart and your mind. Rejoice! You are invited to embark on a journey across the entire universe, from the peaks of Mt.Kilimanjaro to the innermost core of your being. Led by the emotional carpenter himself—Mr. Stephan Stephensen, AKA President Bongo—and accompanied by his merry band of hand-picked accomplices, Les Adventures de President Bongo is a unique work of art that will reveal itself over the next seven years, give or take.

Named and shaped in loving tribute to Tintin, the fabled Belgian journalist who defined what it meant to be an adventurer in the 20th Century, Les Adventures de President Bongo is a bonafide objet d‘art. Ambitiously assembled objects of beauty, the exteriors are designed by Paul Mcmenamin.

After making his name with legendary electro outfit Gusgus, President Bongo has spent the past two decades on a mission of discovery, searching the fringes for fresh inspiration, inviting kindred spirits he encounters along the way to join in his republic and contribute to its continued prosperity. The President‘s hard work is amply reflected in the music presented on Les Adventures de President Bongo, where he assumes the role of producer/instigator/artistic director, tasking some of modernity‘s most revered musicians with expanding their horizons and testing their limits.

Les Adventures de President Bongo kicks off in May 2017 with composer/singer/archetype Högni Egilsson‘s Shed Your Skin (Les Adventures de President Bongo #1). A transformative work from a beloved artist, the LP very much lives up to its name, seeing Högni explore hitherto uncharted terrains of his creative mind.

The second leg of our epic adventure will commence in August, as celebrated indie pop outfit Tilbury drop Drama/Transmission (Les Adventures de President Bongo #2). On the President’s urging (and with his assistance), Drama/Transmission presents a new take on the patented Tilbury sound, reworking some of their classics, while remaining firmly rooted in the tightly honed aesthetic the band has made its name on.

Our journey advances come November with the release of President Bongo and Óttar Sæmundssen’s Quadrantes (Les Adventures de President Bongo #3). An independent sequel to President Bongo’s 2015 solo outing, the tantalizing Serengeti, Quadrantes is a postmodern travelogue, detailing the latter half of the voyage Bongo & The Emotional Carpenters commenced with Serengeti, where direction is finally exhausted and pure animal intuition reigns.

And then in February, another chapter is added. And so on and so on.

Les Adventures de President Bongo will be released by Radio Bongo & AlbumLabel

None of it will stream, none of it will download.

All of it requires your presence and your being.
