At an early age Esinam Dogbatse became fascinated by percussion instruments such as the ‘tama’. Piano was her first ‘true’ instrument, but for obvious practical reasons when travelling, she soon opted for the flute. Her compositions carry traces from different worlds, geographically, culturally and musically. In her live performances, she wants to preserve as much freedom as possible. By defining as little as possible inadvance, she’s left with enough room for improvisation. As a flutist and percussionist, she plays and played with bands the likes of Marock’in Brass, Kel Assouf, Témé Tan and Sysmo. Baloji invited her to guest on his latest record and Mélanie De Biasio booked her as a support act for her sold-out shows at Ancienne Belgique in December 2017. In April 2018, she performed the opening act on the large stage at Botanique during Les Nuits for Nakhane and Témé Tan. Both Alsarah & The Nubatones and Selah Sue are impressed with her unique musical universeand invited her to star as their support act for their sold-out concerts. In September 2018, ESINAM will release her rst EP with Sdban Ultra (NEWS Records), which will be followed by a solo show at La Rotonde in Botanique, Brussels (21/09).
