French musician Mathieu Boogaerts to give solo concert in Tashkent

June 20, 2014

A solo concert of French composer and singer Mathieu Boogaerts will take place at the State Conservatory of Uzbekistan on June 21, the Embassy of France reports.

The concert will allow the public to get acquainted with "one of the brightest representatives of contemporary French music."

Boogaerts will perform songs from his 10 albums, including the latest one "Mathieu Boogaerts" (2012).

The musician started playing an organ when he was 10. After two years of taking courses, he started his first musical group with two fellow students and friends from middle school.

After many years traveling the world, mostly Africa, Mathieu Boogaerts started penning some naive, minimalistic ditties. His sketchy sound sometimes mixes African rhythms with reggae, and his influences such as the Dutch singer Dick Annegarn.

His music is known for its laid-back style and many of his songs include a very light and delicate drum beat.
