Chandigarh : French artist, Lecomte de Bregeot, an electro music DJ, was in the city today for a performance. Lecomte de Bregeot, known for his innovative approach to electro music, brings a fresh perspective to the world of French music.
The artist mesmerized the listeners here yesterday at the Chandigarh College of Architecture and at Upstairs Club in Panchkula on Friday, as a part of the Alliances Française Tour 2023, showcasing the organization’s dedication to fostering cultural exchanges between India and France through the universal language of music.
Expressing enthusiasm for this event, Mr. Thierry Mathou, Ambassador of France to India, said, “Lecomte de Bregeot exemplifies the rich diversity of the French artistic scene. He brought to India, the best electronic French touch from Lyon. The event is a celebration of the enduring artistic partnership between France and India, further solidifying Alliances Françaises’ role as a bridge between our two cultures.”
Born in Paris in 1986, he grew up in Lyon. As a teenager at the turn of the 90s and 2000s, he fell in love with techno, and later started to compose using machines, his own music being at the confluence of techno, new wave and house. It was not until a few years later that he would devote himself to it full time. His warm, synthetic beats, used as a signature for his electronic compositions, promise to energize the Indian audience. His music has also found resonance in the fashion and luxury world, having been featured in promotional ads for prestigious brands like Yves Saint-Laurent, with which he has a long-term collaboration. Lecomte de Bregeot is rising to become a leading figure in the world of French electro music, with his influence expanding internationally. He is a recipient of the FAIR award, a public organisation promoting the best of young musical talents in France and abroad.
He is also travelling to other cities as well and will hold workshops in addition to his shows, to interact with both local audiences and professionals. This is part of the multi-layered approach that the Cultural Department of the Embassy of France is promoting.
