The cosmopolitan singer-songwriter Batila is so versatile that no genre could fully describe his music. He grew up hearing a blend of urban Congolese music, reggae, rock and pop and processes this early learning into songs that negotiate political issues over gripping rhythms.

His debut album Tatamana, recorded with the band “The DreamBus” in Berlin, Paris and Kinshasa, can be seen as a journey through space and time: It mediates between the cities and musical cultures just as it brings the past into the present to forge a forward-looking sound
