Batch Gueye Band Short Info

Uplifting Griot music with soulful vocals.

Batch is a West-African Griot, a storyteller through his music and dance. His mother,
grandmother, and those before them had been singers.

Singing prayers as a BayeFall Mouride Muslim is where Batch found his voice. Naturally, many
of his songs today are of praise, thanking Allah and thanking religious leaders that have guided
the people of his country for years. Other songs are simply life experiences and wisdom,
teaching you to be good to yourself and respect those around you to listen, to trust and to have
faith in life.

Batch sings his songs in the Senegalese language Wolof. However, language does not obstruct
his music. The passion Batch has can be heard in his soulful voice and understood by all.
Batch’s energy as a dancer is as vibrant and colourful as the patchwork clothes of his BayeFall
people. Like his music, his dance style is a collection of both traditional and modern African
cultures, and his combination of strong and fast movement promises to be a striking display.

Batches sincerity as a singer is equal to the energy he brings as a dancer, a man of many
talents - You can trust that Batch will never fail to amaze!
