Preview: Bonobo Live at Hamilton's Royal Botanical Gardens

Every once in a while a show comes along that is clearly unmissable from the moment you hear about it.  It's a mysterious thing because the reasons might not always be clear, though you know you absolutely need to be there.  The grand finale of Bonobo's Migration tour is one of those shows, bringing his headline tour to a close in Hamilton, Ontario.  The venue is the Raspberry Farms at the Royal Botanical Gardens, already one of the regions most vibrant and compelling tourist destinations and a beautiful setting for a show like this.

Migration was released January 13th, 2017 on Ninja Tune, and it quickly established itself as one of the top albums of the year.  It reached the top 5 on the UK album chart, the top 10 in Canada, as well as reaching the number 1 spot on the US electronic album chart.  In November of 2017 it was nominated for a Grammy for best dance/electronic album.  While these accomplishments are all extremely impressive, and show the increasing reach Bonobo's music has throughout the world they don't really illustrate the most powerful aspect of this music.

You can feel it the first time you hear the single 'Bambro Koyo Ganda' with Innov Gnawa, and you'll really feel it if you immerse yourself in the album from beginning to end.  Within these songs there is a sense of change, just like in people and places.  A sense of wonder if home is where you're from or where you are.  It's the notion that every life is connected and that through the movement of migration we can all grow and evolve.  

Being a part of such a big show as this one on July 7th, for an album as vital as Migration from an artist as inspiring and innovative as Bonobo is an invitation that is too good to pass up.  Don't let this be the one you regret missing, get your tickets here and listen to Migration below.
