Bonobo's Live Downtempo Show Will Blow Your Mind

If you ever get the chance to see Bonobo with his live band, don't pass on the opportunity. It's an absolutely incredible experience. You might remember my review of his show in Seattle last fall - I still can't say enough good things about it. The production and the musicality flow together like intertwining silk threads, and come together to weave what you see in the just released video of Bonobo's Glastonbury performance. Before I say any more, watch this and see and hear what I'm describing. Simon has been on tour for over a year now after releasing his latest album, The North Borders. Joined by a group of amazingly talented musicians and the beautiful Szjerdene on vocals, his ensemble has been around the world a few times over. Their North Borders tour will end soon, but you'll still be able to catch Bonobo for a DJ set here and there. I'll be seeing him for the third time in Seattle this October. It's a DJ set at Neumos and you can grab tickets here! Trust me, you absolutely will not be disappointed. If you need any more convincing (I sure don't), give his BBC Radio One essential mix a listen right here! Also be on the lookout for the Live CD/DVD for the North Borders Tour, coming out soon!
