Two years after El Dorado Sunset, Boogat returns with his new album Neo-Reconquista, set to be released on May 4th via Maisonnette. A 5 à 7 on Tuesday, May 5th will take place at the Théâtre Fairmount to celebrate the launch. He will also be performing in Ottawa at the National Arts Centre on May 22nd. More tour dates will be announced soon.
The first single, featuring Pierre Kwenders, sets the tone of the album: festive grooves and meaningful lyrics. Londres is about the disappearance and homogenization of cultures, both human and environmental. As the digital age accelerates this phenomenon, it is important to protect our cultures to ensure they stand the test of time, without fear or tears.
A musical manifesto in Spanish and Lingala…
Boogat is a brilliant MC who constantly reinvents himself with his prolific discography and a unique artistic approach. With his album El Dorado Sunset, Boogat was embraced by the general public in Quebec. He won two Félix at the industry gala L'ADISQ for that record for World Music Album of the Year and Producer of the Year. He has opened for Nortec Collective, Quantic, Gilles Peterson and Chromeo between others. Boogat also has earned international recognition mainly in Mexico and the United States where tours and festival appearances have increased significantly since 2013. Some of his songs have also made their way to Hollywood, including placements in blockbusters like the TV series Homeland and the film The Forger with John Travolta.
