A virtuoso classical pianist who composes music for the best rap in French? At the age of 31, this French artist, reared on the musical repertoires of Chopin and Booba, is regarded as a musical prodigy. Awarded a gold medal by the Lille national conservatoire at the age of 7, twenty years later his career continues as the self-proclaimed “French Piano King”, collaborating with top dogs Vald, Koba LaD, Médine and Scylla, who performed with him at the Liszto Club in 2019. A bold composer, enlightened producer and shrewd entrepreneur, Sofiane has now released Planet, his first solo album. Across twelve legs from Chicago to Cairo, he mixes classical, rap, jazz and Oriental sounds.
