BGB is a six-piece band, bringing traditional music and dance from Senegal to the UK. Together with a tight band of exceedingly skilled musicians, Batch Gueye consistently delivers striking recordings and dynamic live performances and lately won the World Music Network Battle of the Bands!
Batch himself is an energetic singer and dancer from Senegal who has lived here for a few years. The band has been growing over the last two years, building up a fanbase in London and around Bristol, and have played at Shambala, Kaya, Feed The 5000, Fieldview and others; currently we are booked for Rhythmtree, Woolley, Tribal Earth and WOMAD with more in the pipeline.
Batch and the band also lead dancing, chanting and drumming workshops in the traditional styles that the music is based on. These combine very successfully with a band performance.
