Richard Bona was born into a family of musicians, which enabled him to start learning music from a young age. His grandfather was a griot – a West African singer of praise and storyteller – and percussionist, and his mother was a singer. Richard Bona remains true to his roots with African rhythms reflected in each of his albums. Reverence is the second studio album originally released in 2001 and displays his unique approach to storytelling through sounds. His unique style is situated at the crossroads of a horde of influences - jazz, bossa nova, pop music, afro-beat, traditional song, and funk.
