There, in 1972, he recorded a harrowing first album soberly entitled 'Angola 72', with Capeverdean musicians for the Dutch label Morabeza (today available on Lusafrica). This key record quickly became something of a soundtrack for Angola’s struggle for independence. Its star song was the emblematic 'Mona Ki Ngi Xica', a lamento of unfathomable Atlantic depth.His wanderlust then took him to Paris, where he recorded a second album that proved just as important as the first - 'Angola 74', featuring a magnificent version of 'Sodade', which would be popularised by Cesaria Evora nearly twenty years later. With Salazar ousted and Angola now independent, Bonga divided his time between Lisbon and Luanda. He had many hits, but refused to play the part of a Portuguese-speaking Julio Iglesias, although certain producers urged him to do so.
