West African Stories: Senegal 2003

By September 17, 2013Blog

This 3 month trip took me to Les Nez de Afrique or Africa’s most Western tip – Senegal I was privileged to stay with Bouly Sonko (Director of the National Ballet) and his family. Surrounded by musicians and dancers i soaked up the nuances of their music True to the local styles i took up study in Sabaa, Tama (talking drum) and Djembe with the lead drummers from the ballet – all generous & patient teachers A musically rich and diverse hotpot of music, Dakar remains a force for the international Diaspora
