Professional Drummer, artist, & music producer Jamal Batiste is one of many musical seeds of New Orleans’s own Batiste Family. He is an exceptionally talented drummer, who has been playing drums since the age of three. Jamal earned his specialized degree in Jazz Studies from the University of New Orleans. Jamal has performed in the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival since the age of five. He performed with the Batiste Brothers Band and had his own show in the Kid’s tent, Congo Square stage, Fox 8 stage, and the Acura Stage. He’s toured in Africa, Japan, Canada, Europe, and USA with international bands such as Los Hombres Calientes, Jon Cleary and AMG, The Wild Magnolias, and a host of others. Jamal’s rhythmical tone is a Gumbo of funk, rhythm and blues, Latin, gospel, second Line, rock, soul, classical, and jazz that has inspired and mesmerized his fans and supporters of all ages. For his first project, Jamal recorded and executive produced his father’s first solo album, “New Orleans Is Coming Back” by David Batiste & the Gladiators. For his second project he produced a compilation album called “The Unorthodox Drummer: The First Assemblage,” that’s in stores and online (iTunes!). He has shared the stage with international artists such as Drake, Lalah Hathaway, Ledisi, Anthony Hamilton, Bonnie Rait, Musiq Soulchild, Yolanda Adams, and many more.
