Owner of a rich and vast discography, Bonga, who returns to the space where he was last in April 2014, will be responsible for conducting a program dedicated to the 43 years of the national independence day.

Estevão Costa, responsible for the space, told Angop that, more than a tribute, the program will bring to the forefront an icon of the largest Angolan cultural banner, semba, in a symbiosis between several generations.

At the age of 76, Bonga, born in Kipiri, Bengo province, is considered ambassador of the Angolan music.
