Bonobo is on tour now in support of this year's Migration. Having just played Coachella (twice), he has a sold-out two-night stand at NYC's Terminal 5 tonight (4/27) and Friday (4/28). Opening both shows is his Ninja Tune labelmate Romare and Brooklyn Gnawa music group Innov Gnawa, who appear on "Bambro Koyo Ganda" on Migration.
"Bambro Koyo Ganda" actually just got a music video, and here's what director Stylewar says about it:
The music of Bonobo is incredibly rich and colorful. It feels as if it was inspired by the indescribable beauty of the natural world. I wanted the video to have an equally inspired and colourful feeling. The world is full of music and rhythm — look carefully and it’s everywhere you go. It’s at the core of our wonderful planet, and I wanted the video to celebrate that fact.
The video is a vast collection of material, including some footage shot specifically for this video as well as existing footage from around the world. Then, through the magic of editing, we endeavored to make every movement in the video correspond to the movement of the music, whether to its rhythm or to the very notes themselves. If you look closely, you should notice that the smallest details have been tweaked to sync the music to the movement. Like the music of Bonobo, it celebrates the rhythmic beauty of our world.
Watch the new video below.
After tonight's T5 show, Bonobo will hit Williamsburg dance club Output for a late-night DJ set. You can still get tickets for that. Updated tour dates are listed below.
