Boogat (aka Daniel Russo Garrido): latino rap

Boogat by Guillaume Simoneau.jpgQuebec rapper, writer and producer, Boogat grew up in Beauport.

He had another name then -- Daniel Russo Garrido.

Boogat's first three albums were in French. But he's just produced his first full-length solo album in Spanish.
It's called El Dorado Sunset.

Boogat has won a Juno nomination with the Roberto Lopez Project, and with another band, he even had a song listed in the Favourite 100 Songs of 2011 by NPR and the Washington Post. But his Latin-tinged music and Spanish rap is now finding an audience beyond Quebec and the US too.

Boogat - Daniel Russo Garrido - spoke with Sonali Karnick.
