House Nights: Getting intimate with France’s undisputed Piano King
Last weekend, the ‘enfant terrible’ of French classical music, Sofiane Pamart, performed songs from his new album, ‘Letter’, at Soho House Paris
Demonstrated by Ye’s live album, Late Orchestration (2006), Kendrick Lamar’s song ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’, and Nas’s track ‘I Can’, classical rap crossovers are a genre combination capable of standing the test of time. Cue French piano virtuoso, Sofiane Pamart. The indisputable go-to pianist and composer for French rappers, he has collaborated with the likes of rap heavy hitters, Koba LaD, Vald and Maes, becoming a standout artist in his own right.
Off the back of his new album release, Letter, Pamart stopped by Soho House Paris to perform a set in front of a handful of members and guests. ‘The Cabaret Room was made for special nights like this,’ Antoine Remise, Soho House’s Head of Member Events for Europe, told us. Currently on an unstoppable upward trajectory, it may be quite some time before fans are able to catch Pamart’s mastery so intimately again.
