Event Info

Ever since his solo debuts in 1999, Richard Bona has defended the idea of music that's universal: generous and accessible to all. He was born in 1967 in Minta, a tiny Cameroon village, into a family where both his mother and grandfather were singers. Richard was playing the balafon by the time he was four, and then he taught himself to play the guitar. Later, in the capital of Douala, a jazz-club owner played him records by bassist Jaco Pastorius; Richard decided he'd teach himself to play the bass as well.

After moving to Europe in 1989 and working with Didier Lockwood, Manu Dibango and Salif Keita he continued his musical education befroe moving to New York in 1995. He quickly established a reputation as one of the best bassists around and polayed alongside Pat Metheny, Mike Stern, Larry Coryell, the Brecker Brothers, Steve Gadd, Joe Zawinul and even Harry Belafonte.

Since going solo in 1999 Richard Bona has released some incredible albums such as "Tiki", "The ten shades of blues" and 2013's "Bonafied".
