Batenga TheMyth likes to consider herself a global DJ. She has been a DJ since 2001, when she accidentally stumbled on decks and had to do a 15-minute crash course on site on how to work the decks at an event in Boston in the USA, what was supposed to be just dinner music turned into playing the whole event by herself, making all sorts of mistakes, but the floor was filled, much as she laughs about it today, that day was a situation of swimming out of the deep end, no better way to gain appreciation for the art than that! She was hooked there on out. Her Djaying has taken her across the United States to Europe, Nairobi, Kampala and Johannesburg. Two years ago she started Mixtape Volumes called Tropical African Heat, those have garnered her popularity amongst Africans in the Diaspora and have opened up more opportunities for her. DJaying to her is an art that constitutes good music selection, understanding your music, understanding your audience, knowing and understanding your craft and your gear and most importantly having FUN!
