The UK's DJ Bonobo heads to Cape Town for one night only

Cape Town - British musician, producer and DJ Bonobo will head to Cape Town on Friday, 8 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 in the world.

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.

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, 4 October on Webtickets.
