Bonobo played Terminal 5 with Innov Gnawa (night 1 pics)
Bonobo is on tour now and he's in the midst of a NYC run, having played Coachella the last two weekends. Last night (4/27), he played Terminal 5, backed by a wind section, two vocalists, and Moroccan troop Innov Gnawa who also feature on "Bambro Koyo Ganda" from Bonobo's new album Migration (which got a video yesterday). Bonobo played songs off that album, plus stuff from Black Sands and North Borders too. Innov Gnawa also opened the show, and Bonobo's Ninja Tune labelmate Romare played after them. Pictures are in the gallery above (none of the openers unfortunately).
After last night's T5 show, Bonobo DJed a late-night party at Output. He plays T5 again tonight (4/28), once again with Romare and Innov Gnawa. Tonight's show is sold out.
