MGMT / BOOKING
BOOGAT is a French Canadian Spanish vocalist who truly represents the future of Latin Music. Nominated at the JUNOs (with Roberto Lopez Project ) and ADISQ, he’s a young talented MC bridging latin groove with urban and electronic music who already played some major international festivals like Montreal Jazz Fest, Toronto Small World Music Festival or Sonar Festival in Barcelona. During the last 18 months he released 2 free mixtapes, 1 EP and many collaborations with musicians from all around the world. His song El Alto De La Paz with Mati Zundel was part of NPR’s and the Washington Post favorite 100 songs of 2011. His explosive live show will turn any situation into a party for both the latin fans and a larger audience.
Boogat is skillful in creating a connection and communicating with the audience during his shows and he plays his repertoire with Kiko Osorio, a virtuoso Cuban percussionist (he played for years with Los Van Van), a back vocal and a dj (sometimes internationally recognized producer Ghislain Poirier (Ninja Tune)). He’s working on his first all Spanish album, which will be added to his 3 albums in French already released.
