Batch Gueye's modern day Griot music is inspired by the Senegalese Baye Fall folklore. With his soulful voice, Batch magically brings the heart of West-Africa to you.
In November 2012 Batch's song M'Beugel has won the World Music Network's Battle of the Bands competition with a landslide public vote. After an EP and a debut album, Ndirarigne, Batch is now back with his much longed after second album. The album (2017) is called Xamle meaning Storyteller in his native Wolof.
