Mathieu Boogaerts

Mathieu Boogaert's Website and Facebook

on iTunes and Amazon

After many years travelling the world, mostly Africa (especially Kenya), he started penning some naive, minimalistic ditties.
His sketchy, intimate sound sometimes mixes African rhythms with reggae, and his influences such as the Dutch singer Dick Annegarn, with whom he toured in 1997.

His album Michel is accompanied by an amateur film made by Boogaerts himself.

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