Gestu Groupe / Senegal
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. Originating from three different countries they want to spread their dream of a peaceful and productive co-existence of cultures. ‘Gëstu’ plays their own compositions which are arranged collectively by the group. Their music is full of emotions and warmth, melting influences from modern European Jazz, African rhythms and grooves and catchy melodies. Gëstu Groupe released their second album which is available here:
