Description

Mercury Lounge presents
Boogat - World Music Juno Winner 2016
Album Release party "San Cristobal Baile Inn"
Friday, November 10th


"San Cristobal Baile Inn" is Boogat’s third album, written entirely in Spanish. It brings him back to a more urban and electronic sound with more rap and reggaeton flavors. Boogat’s new album is danceable, uplifting and party oriented, fitting with the general audience’s expectations of what Latin music is, while still remaining politically charged.

San Cristobal (St. Christopher) is the patron of the travellers and the album is a celebration of immigrants and travellers at large. Cristobal’s “Inn” symbolizes the hotel we are all travelling through for a brief moment.

The album was written during the year that Boogat had spent living in Mexico’s capital DF in search of his own personal connection to his parent’s culture. His mom being from Mexico, he wanted to bring his family to the city, explore its neighbourhoods, its music and its subcultures. While doing so he connected with the diaspora of international Latin musicians who congregate in the metropolis, making Mexico the number one city for Latin music.
