Following the international success of PLANET and LETTER, Sofiane Pamart presents his third solo album, NOCHE. His first work was a travel around the world, while the second was a love letter addressed directly to his audience, this third project will plunge you into the depths of the night. Always nomadic by nature, always keen to cherish the deep bond he has forged with his audience.
Sofiane Pamart is back this time after several months’ adventure spent in Latin America, where he composed the entirety of this new album. Now firmly established as a star pianist, he delivers his new single “Noche”, the album’s eponym. A signature track, where his winning style shines through from the very first notes, with an emotional accuracy, a dark yet sensitive character that sounds like an invitation to the unknown or the unexpected.

Berlin is considered to be the capital of techno music. I’m interested in this musical genre and I’ve worked with artists like NTO, with whom we’ve composed a totally transcendent and magical track. .

I compose on my piano and record directly into my PC. When I’m inspired, I don’t go out, so I order food via my mobile. If I’d been born in another era, I’d probably have done things differently, but today my life depends on it.
11. What can we expect from your concert in Berlin?
Get comfortable and let yourself be carried away by the sensual nights of Latin America with a journey through all the states of mind.
