The Band

‘Gëstu’ means ‘research’, ‘to deepen’, in Wolof, Senegal’s traditional language. Research and create new compositions through blending different styles of music and culture is what this young band from Dakar is dedicated to.

You find them performing regularly around Dakar, e.g. at ‘Djoloff’, German Ambassy and Goethe Insitut ..
