Bonobo’s sixth studio album, ‘Migration’, is a truly existential experience where a melodic fusion of sounds - including flecks of soul, tribal beats and orchestral crescendos - links each track. It conjures emotions ranging from melancholia to euphoria and is the result of Simon Green challenging himself to write his most human record to date.
