11 November 2017 Akbank Jazz Festival: Bonobo (Live)
Bonobo will be performing at Volkswagen Arena on the 11 of November during the 27th International Akbank Jazz Festival! Simon Green, a.k.a. Bonobo, with his albums Animal Magic, Dial M for Monkey, Days to Come, Black Sands and the North Borders, he fused jazz with Afro rhythms or Gamelan bells of Indonesia with European disco pulses, thus developing a new global sensibility in electronic music. With his compilation album Late Night Tales and its re-edits of tracks by artists ranging from Bill Evans to Airhead, and the singer Szjerdene, he garnered worldwide attention. For the promotion of his fifth album The North Borders, he went on a huge world tour, which covered 175 shows, including a sell-out at the Sydney Opera House. But during this time, he lost a close member of the family, which made him meditate on identity, home, belonging, migrating people and what they carry along with them. Then, Bonobo prolonged his 8-month-long tour into 3 years of migration in the heart of wilderness. So, came out his latest album Migration, an existential study of people and places, exploring human’s emotional dynamics.
