Edd Bateman bio

In 2001 a 14 year old heavy metal bassist growing up in Devon, UK was jamming away at home when there was a knock at the door. A Zimbabwean dance band had just arrived in the country, needed a bass player for their tour and just happened to turn up at his neighbours house. Having never heard this kind of music before the jam session that began that night became Edd Bateman’s introduction to African music.
