Bonga

Kuenda Bonga, known by his fans as Bonga, is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Angola. His activities for Angola’s liberation movement forced him to flee the country in the late 60s. He lived in Rotterdam, Paris and London where he began recording songs with arrangements influenced by Angolan folk music, Brazilian samba, Spanish flamenco and other international styles. He’s made 17 original albums since 1972. He is well known in Europe and West Africa, but his popularity in the United States is mostly confined to world music aficionados.
