RICHARD BONA & MANDEKAN CUBANO

Bassist/vocalist Richard Bona, born and raised in Cameroon, arrived in New York in the mid-’90s and wowed crowds with his unique sound and presence. His latest project is his spirited Afro-Cuban group Mandekan Cubano which melds together a variety of roots music from Africa, South America and of course, Cuba. Bona’s six-piece band includes two percussionists, making this celebration ripple and soar.
