DJ and music critic Mannasseh Phiri tells us about the latest release from Cameroonian jazz bassist Richard Bona.
Richard Bona: Ten shades of blue – Souleymane
Richard Bona: Ten shades of blue – Shiva Mantra
If Richard Bona is good enough for the Pat Metheny Group , ” You ” – Speaking of Now Live, then his talents have been exposed.
I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mannasseh Phiri’s contribution on Global Hit. I think they are extremely informative and always have authentic African Music that reflect the continents rich and diverse culture.
I had the pleasure of watching Richard Bona at Yoshis in Oakland and i would not hesitate to watch him again. Captivating performance and he has already worked with quite a few western musicians (John Legend included)
My only complaint is that this portion of the show is so short and non of the songs are played in their entirety. A longer period would be great
