Best of Bonga – Angola rocks the house

Angolan Legend Bonga
Angolan Legend Bonga

Since the 1970s Angola’s Bonga has featured prominently in the nations music and this is yet another epic slab to hit the World Music scene drawing on performances and works that span his 30 year career. For me Portuguese is one of the most interesting of all languages for music to be sung in, there is just something about its pronunciation and intonation that makes it fabulously interesting to listen to.  If you enjoy the sounds of Sara Tavares, Myra Andrade (who’s new album Storia Storia will soon be reviewed here too) or, the melodies of Madagascar’s Modeste, you’ll find that the Best of Bonga will sit comfortably in your collection.
