British musician, producer, DJ, and one of the biggest names in dance music Bonobo, aka Simon Green returns to Cape Town to perform at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on Friday the 24th of March 2023.
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 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.
‘Fragments’ is the sound of both struggle and isolation – personally and collectively – and of a surging, joyous return: a gorgeous reminder of how out of struggle and disillusionment, creativity and hope can emerge at the most unexpected moments.
Green’s work has amassed a cult following around the globe, collaborating with various musical heavyweights solidifying his presence on the electronic music scene.
