Bonobo is coming to Nashville with his Fragments Live Tour 2022!

Bonobo (Simon Green) is a British musician, producer, and DJ based in Los Angeles. He debuted with a trip hop aesthetic, and has since explored more upbeat approaches as well as jazz and world music influences. His tranquil electronic sound incorporates the use of organic instrumentation, and is recreated by a full band in live performances. Green’s work has attained a cult following, and he has collaborated with a variety of other artists.

Green’s work has attained a cult following, and he has collaborated with a variety of other artists.

Bonobo’s sound is oriented on beats and samples but typically “soothing”, combining influences ranging from club music to world music. Pitchfork named him a key figure in the 2000s downtempo electronica scene while The Guardian associated him with the recent popularity of “ambient world electronica”. While his earliest work was firmly based in trip hop, his style soon became more upbeat and delved into genres such as jazz (which has led him to be described as a nu jazz artist) and traditional Indian music. He has collaborated with various artists, including Bajka, Andreya Triana, Erykah Badu, and Rhye who contributed vocals to songs on his last four albums Days to Come, Black Sands, The North Borders, and Migration, respectively. He also performed with Robert Luis of the Tru Thoughts label under the alias of Nirobi and Barakas.

Bonobo released his sixth album, Migration, in January 2017. In an interview with Billboard, Bonobo said that he conceived the album from “living and being in various locations”, as he toured extensively and did not “have a home base for about a year”. The album and the track Bambro Koyo Ganda was nominated for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronic Album. The album peaked higher in the UK chart (number 5) and in the US (number 59). In 2018, Bonobo’s Migration album also won Album of the Year at the 2017 Electronic Music Awards and Bonobo was also nominated for Live Act of the Year. On 1 July 2019, Bonobo released a new song, “Linked”, online. “Linked” was later nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 62nd Grammy Awards, but lost to “Got to Keep On” by The Chemical Brothers. The following year, Bonobo remixed Michael Kiwanuka’s song “Final Days”.

Bonobo’s seventh studio album Fragments is scheduled to release January 14, 2022. A single titled “Rosewood” debuted on October 6th, 2021.
