Richard Bona Essentials

Richard Bona Essentials

Born in Cameroon and honing his craft in Germany, France and the US, where he still resides, Bona marries soft-spoken lyrics with smooth waves of electric bass, percussion and balafon, lending a decidedly African identity to his elegant crossbred jazz. Inspired by music in the vein of Jaco Pastorius and collaborating on and off stage with established musicians like Joe Zawinul, Pat Metheny and Branford Marsalis, his delivery is invariably accessible and modest. Discover his proven versatility and talent with this playlist.
