Musiques du monde - Paru le 1 janvier 2003 | Universal Music Division Decca Records France

Distinctions Discothèque Idéale Qobuz
Le titre du troisième album du bassiste et chanteur camerounais Richard Bona, n'est pas anodin ; Munia (The Tale), le « conte », ou la « fable ». Il s'agit bien sûr d'une invitation au voyage que se veut-être l'album, mais aussi d'une référence à cette tradition du sud du Cameroun qu'est la chantefable . Cette tradition dont le but est la sauvegarde et la transmission, sous forme de fable chantée, de la culture collective (arts, mythes, entre autres) est ici stylisée et modernisée, et traverse l'album, un album aux échappées, jazzistiques (Painting a Wish) , fusion et funk (Engingilaye), nombreuses et toujours très réussie. Peut-on du reste parler d'échappées, pour un musicien qui maitrise tous ses genres à la perfection depuis longtemps, les réunissant même parfois en un seul morceau (le très pop, très funk, très jazzy, et en définitive très fusion Balemba Na Bwenba). C'est avec une technique, un contrôle et une élégance hors du commun que Richard Bona se fait fabuliste, nous transportant dans les contrées paisibles, satinées et oniriques du Cameroun.© René Obe/Qobuz

Pop/Rock - Paru le 18 septembre 2001 | Columbia

Richard Bona was born in a little village in West Africa. His mother was a singer and his grandfather was both a singer and musician. Those talents were passed down naturally. By the time Bona was of school age, he spent plenty of hours performing at church. At home, his hunger for the world of music found him making his own flutes, drums, and even a decent guitar. As a teenager he moved to a large city where he soon found a way to get his fill of jazz and the chance to play real instruments and learn to read and write music. On this 2001 album, Reverence, his second full-length recording, all of those years of surrounding himself with music shine through. Even though the lyrics aren't in English, fans from the United States seem to enjoy the album. Bona's songs on Reverence are jazz, but done in a world style, with the flavor of his homeland proudly holding a large spot. The numbers on this recording carry styles of fusion and American jazz, but also offer African pop, Latin, jazz-rock, and even some orchestral arrangements. © Charlotte Dillon /TiVo

Jazz fusion & Jazz rock - Paru le 24 août 1999 | Columbia

Richard Bona's debut solo album Scenes from My Life is an unexpected delight, a first effort of such assurance that it's nearly irresistable. Bona blends a smooth production with fusions of contemporary jazz and music from his native country, Cameroon, West Africa. He has a warm, fluid style on bass and his voice is pure, high and lovely. To some undiscriminating ears, it may sound a little too smooth, but there is no calculation behind this music, only joy, and that is what makes Scenes from My Life a first-class debut. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
