Heritage: Richard Bona and Mandekan Cubano

Heritage is the eighth album by Richard Bona, also called "The African Sting" by his fans, and the Afro-Cuban band Mandekan Cubano. The music draws upon the roots of Cuban music, and its incorporation of African rhythms. A vibrant cultural fusion, the richness of Heritage incorporates bass, guitars, electric sitar, vocals, percussion, keyboards, and more into a passionate, stimulating listening experience. Highly recommended, especially for world music collections.
