Rounding off a phenomenal year, Bonobo has received two Grammy nominations for Best Dance/Electronic Album for Migration and for Best Dance/Electronic Recording for 'Bambro Koyo Ganda (feat. Innov Gnawa)'.
Acclaimed in publications ranging from the Guardian, Pitchfork to i-D, Migration, released early 2017 on Ninja Tune, peaked at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Album charts in over 50 territories and hit #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic albums, proving itself a touchstone for both Bonobo’s career and for an audience looking for substance and emotion from the music they listen to. Perhaps more than any other tune on the album, ‘BambroKoyo Ganda’ sonically embodies the album - a journey through cultural and locational displacement and the strange familiarity that inevitably surfaces out of transient life, featuring Moroccan by-way-of New York City band Innov Gnawa.
Following multiple sold out global live tours, headline festivals slots at Wilderness, Manchester International Festival and the 6Music Festival in Glasgow, a main stage performance at Coachella and further appearances at Citadel, Melt, Roskilde and Fuji Rock, Bonobo recently announced two triumphant homecoming shows at Alexandra Palace in London on 31st May(Jordan Rakei support) and 1st June 2018 (Gogo Penguin support, now sold out).
