ABOUT

Antoine Boyer drank from the most authentic sources of gypsy jazz, being a disciple of such masters as Mandino Reinhardt and Francis-Alfred Moerman, with whom he recorded his first CD-DVD in 2009, acclaimed by French and American critics (Jazzman, Vintage Guitars). Antoine also performed Francis-Alfred Moerman's works in tribute concerts at the Angers Gypsy Swing festival in 2010, as well as the Django Reinhardt festival (Samois) in 2011.

 

Antoine Boyer's 2nd CD, Leské (“for him”, in the Sinti language) received several awards, among which was Trad'Mag's 'Bravo'.  In 2011, following the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, Antoine Boyer organized a concert in Brussels to raise money for Act for Japan. Following the release of his 3rd CD, Sita, which earned a 'Revelation' award from Jazzman magazine, Antoine Boyer was chosen as the 'Revelation 2012' by Guitarist Acoustic magazine. He is the first gypsy jazz guitarist to receive this much sought-after distinction.
