BOOGÁT - EL GATO Y LOS RUMBEROS
Come discover Boogát’s new EP, El Gato Y Los Rumberos, with a fantastic show at Le Balcon! Accompanied by eight musicians, Boogát will transport you to the Latin American cabaret of the 1940s, where a love of traditional music and a craving for modernity came together with spectacular results. The image of a new Quebec – pluralistic, culturally rich, brimming with influences – is everywhere in this all-acoustic show.
Boogát delivers a unique blend of hip-hop and Latin American sounds like cumbia, salsa and reggaeton, among others. He shifts effortlessly from a lively cha-cha-cha to a languid, romantic danzón, enjoying intimate moments with the audience before delivering an energetic, irresistibly danceable climax – Boogát’s live signature.
Accompanied by his seasoned band, Boogát leads the guitar, tres, charango, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass and percussion in a thrilling revival of the cabarets of yesteryear. This Montreal-based Mexican-Canadian musician, a Juno and Félix winner, plays all-original sets inspired by the sounds of the 1920s through 1960s. Everybody get up and dance!
