Richard Bona, 'The African Sting', to Release New Album HERITAGE This Fall

Richard Bona is celebrating the release of his new album, Heritage (physical U.S. release Sept. 16th), with a September tour of the U.S.

Cameroonian bassist, vocalist, and songwriter Richard Bona remains true to his roots with African rhythms reflected in each of his albums, displaying his unique approach to storytelling through sounds. Seeking inspiration from his origins, Bona's music addresses international issues, using song to take a stance on issues affecting the oppressed.

Bona's latest album, Heritage, his eighth, is the first with the Afro-Cuban band "Mandekan Cubano." This album traces the roots of Cuban music back to their origins in the Mandekan empire of the 15th century and earlier, before the slave trade and colonization split Sundiata's unified kingdom into so many parts. The music explores the alchemy of African rhythms in Cuba.
