A citizen of the world, from New Zealand
"Syncopated rhythms from West Africa, Arabic Thunder, Flamenco Duende, Latin sunshine, and many other influences from around the world. We can enjoy it all in Jono Heyes' Music." Gita Lancere, Radio Latvia
'Jono Bono' Heyes grew up in an historic gold mining village in the mountains of rural Otago in the deep south of New Zealand.
In 2007, in the port city of Dunedin he formed his own world music group called Mama Yeva – and has been a global artist of that musical realm since.
Heyes has played alongside musicians from more than 20 countries, performing at venues and festivals that promote ecological and social justice around the world.
He has released 3 border crossing albums which have featured on international world and folk radio including the BBC, Radio Spain, Radio Czech, Radio latvia, Radio Romania, Radio Hungary and many others.
