Title: Tiki
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Dubbed 'The African Sting,' Richard Bona expands his wings and soars with his fourth solo album and Decca debut 'Tiki' showing he is a true 'triple threat' in the music world. The bassist-vocalist-composer maintains his universal appeal by using a crossbreed effect on his new album by combining African influences (afro-beat and traditional song) with Latin rhythms, jazz, bossa nova, pop and funk. A complete artist in his own right, Richard Bona is a member of a very small circle of the world's best bass players. With his new album, the multi-instrumentalist not only shows off his masterful bass playing and rich vocals; but, he also takes his hand on the guitar, keyboards and percussion. Adding to the already amazing album, multiple Grammy®-winner John Legend appears on 'Please Don't Stop'. Born in the village of Minta in East Cameroon, Richard Bona grew up in a home filled with music. At the tender age of five, he started performing in public singing in the village church with his mother and four sisters. After moving from Cameroon to Paris and finally to New York in 1995, Bona became one of the most in-demand collaborators on the international Jazz scene, working with a remarkable array of artists, such as Paul Simon, Harry Belafonte, Chaka Khan, Queen Latifah, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Salif Keita, Kazumi, Branford Marsalis, David Sanborn, Regina Carter, Bobby McFerrin and Randy Brecker to name a few.
