After a sold-out 2019 tour – British musician, producer and DJ Bonobo will head to Cape Town on Friday, 24 March 2023, to perform a one night live show as part of the ‘Fragments Live tour 2023′ with his 6-piece live band at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
Bonobo’s rise has been stealthy but unstoppable, and Simon Green, the man behind it all, is now one of the biggest electronic artists of our time! He initially debuted years back with a trip-hop aesthetic, and since ventured into more of an upbeat approach while experimenting with Jazz and World Music.
Green’s career includes seven Grammy nominations and playing to two million people for the tour supporting his 2017 album Migration. Migration also reached no. 1 on Billboard’s Dance album chart and hit Top Ten positions in several countries.
He is also a favourite main stage performer at the world’s greatest music festivals and has worked with Erykah, Badu, Ólafur Arnalds and Jon Hopkins, and remixed artists including Michael Kiwanuka, Gorillaz and George Fitzgerald.
His latest album, Fragments, is the most emotionally intense record that Bonobo has ever had to make. It’s no surprise that it’s also his masterpiece. The album features Jamila Woods, Joji, Kadhja Bonet, Jordan Rakei, O’Flynn and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson.
Born first out of fragments of ideas and experimentation, the album ultimately was fused together in a burst of creativity fueled by both collaboration and Green’s escape into the wild.
