Batch is a West-African Griot, a storyteller through his music and dance. His mother, grandmother, and those before them had been singers.
Singing Baye Fall chants is where Batch found his voice. Batch's songs are about life experiecens: about travel, immigration, places he has lived in and people he met and is grateful to. His songs also talk about feelings such as love and jealousy combined with life wisdom, teaching to be good to oneself, respect others, 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!
