Born in Angola in 1942, Bonga is an icon of African music and the Portuguese-speaking world.
Originally a professional athlete, he mostly attracted attention with his hoarse voice and pro-independence songs in the early 1970s.
His extraordinary voice, the groovy melancholy and the unique mix of Angolan, Portuguese and Brazilian influences have fascinated one generation after the other for about fifty years.
He has released more than 170 songs and 32 albums. After 10 years, Bonga is finally back in Boechout!
