Portrait François BoulangerDeath of François Boulanger

It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of François Boulanger on 22 September.

He has a passion for musical instruments and has acquired a large collection of sanza, which he exhibited at BRUNEAF in 2011.

This remarkable collection, built up over 40 years of passionate research shared by his wife Françoise Bouhière, has been donated to the Musée de la Musique in Paris and the MIM - Musée des instruments de musique in Brussels.

Another important facet of his collection was made up of musical instruments from northern India, mainly Santal.

Most of the work was sarangi, and was exhibited at Le Toit du Monde gallery in September 2022.

A catalogue was published to mark the occasion.

He was a passionate and exciting man who leaves a great void in the world of collectors.
