Batundi is a singer-songwriter and producer born in Goma, Eastern Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo, grew up in Kenya, spent some time in Uganda and has lived for years in South Africa. His childhood was characterized by him listening to different genres of music and playing multiple instruments while moving with his preacher father around East Africa.
The different Central, Eastern and Southern African environments that Batundi inhabited, coupled with the varied musical influences have birthed an eclectic sound, making for an authentic African Pop sonic vibe.
