After countless online petitions and social media requests, it’s finally confirmed – British musician, producer and DJ Bonobo will head to Cape Town on Friday the 8th of February 2019 to perform a one night live show with his 8-piece 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.

His 2017 ‘Migration’ album is his 6th body of work and biggest yet, achieving a top five chart position in the UK and nominated for Best Dance/Electronic album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards cementing his breakthrough in the US. The ‘Migration’ album also won the Album of the Year at the 2017 Electronic Music Awards – and to top it all off, Bonobo was nominated for Live Act of the Year at the awards show. The album’s track ‘Bambro Koyo Ganda’ was also nominated for the Best Dance Recording at the Grammys of that year.

Green’s work has amassed a cult following around the globe, collaborating with various musical heavyweights solidifying his presence on the electronic music scene.

Kicking off 2019, Bonobo and his 8-piece live band will head down south to SA shores and play to an army of local fans at one of Cape Town’s top outdoor venues. Tickets go on sale Thursday 4th October on Webtickets.

Venue: Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town

Time: 18:00 – 22:00
