Richard Bona, one of most respected jazz bass players from Cameroon often tours with own group playing Cuban and native African rhythms. Here's example of Bona with Mandekan Cubano group playing live at Jazz a Vienne 2012, one of most important jazz festivals in Europe since 1981.
Yet another of Harry Belafonte's proteges who later made a big name for himself, Cameroon's Richard Bona takes time out from his ace session bass life to make another remarkably versatile, impeccably polished solo album, Munia: The Tale, his first on Verve. While Bona allows rock, jazz, funk, and Brazilian influences through the window, the melodies and rhythmic patterns are still strongly rooted in West Africa, always permeating the atmosphere. On some of the tracks, Bona needs no help at all to make an impression, layering on his vocals over his bass, guitars, keyboards, and percussion in an exquisitely controlled one-man show. He often does so with the subtle shading and dabs of color of a pianter, like the gentle Moog lines that seep into the background of "Dina Lam."
