Bonobo ft Innov Gnawa 'Bambro Koyo Ganda' by Stylewar
Swedish directing collective Stylewar return to music videos after a long absence for the latest visual treat for Bonobo.
Like the two previous videos for tracks on the current album, for Kerala and No Reason, everything here is subject to subtle manipulation. In this case, each scene contains looping elements, which keep in sync to the beat of the track.
But it's the overarching theme that is really breathtaking: from the overhead shot of a beach to planes landing in formation, time-lapse train footage to a busy port, these mainly stock footage snapshots, lay bare the speed and ceaseless activity of the world as it is now - everywhere – reflecting the themes of Si Green aka Bonobo's current album Migration.
“[It] is a vast collection of material, including some footage shot specifically for this video as well as existing footage from around the world, Then, through the magic of editing, we endeavoured to make every movement in the video correspond to the movement of the music, whether to its rhythm or to the very notes themselves. If you look closely, you should notice that the smallest details have been tweaked to sync the music to the movement. Like the music of Bonobo, it celebrates the rhythmic beauty of our world.”
