Bana


For the Japanese artist Bana, see 葉菜. A Cape Verdean morna singer, Bana got a start in the music business in the 1950s, transporting crippled composer B. Leza from concert hall to concert hall. Perhaps on account of his popularity, Bana found himself accused of collaboration with the colonial Portuguese government, and unable to escape the stigma of these accusations, he moved to Europe, basing himself in Rotterdam, Paris, and more recently, in Lisbon. In addition to being a singer, Bana has also moved into producing and has worked in this capacity with Cesaria Evora. Read more on Last.fm.
