CANCELLED: Richard Bona
December 2, 2017
Bona and his new Mandekan Cubano group – a sextet devoted to reappraising Africa’s influence on Cuban rhythm. Fans call him “The African Sting,” critics call him a pro, but it’s his unique and electrifying style of connecting with his audience that titles him what he really is—a true musician. Bona’s seemingly effortless voice, fierce skills on the bass, unique songwriting/arranging expertise and ability to learn just about any instrument simply from watching, position him as a rare African artist to have established an unscalable reputation on an international platform.
