Event Description

“A superb, virtuosic player, inspired by Jaco Pastorius…with African roots, enhanced by a cross-boundary creativity that comfortably gathers in elements from jazz, R&B, Latin rhythms and some indefinable area of his inner self.” – Los Angeles Times

Fans call him ”The African Sting,” critics call him a pro. Originally from Cameroon, Richard Bona remains true to his roots on Heritage , his 8th album as a leader and the first one with his Afro-Cuban band ”Mandekan Cubano.” An energetic, life affirming and truly fantastic album, it explores the alchemy of African rhythms in Cuba. Richard Bona is a rare African artist to have established an unscalable reputation on an international platform, which has led to a host of awards along with his fruitful collaborations with colleagues Bobby McFerrin, Pat Metheny, Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Paul Simon, John Legend and Stevie Wonder.
