Last night as I parked up, tired, I heard the unmistakable sound of Senegalese drumming. Puzzled, I jumped out of the car and pottered over to the village square, and there on the small stage there was a Senegalese band, just starting up. This music is just so evocative, so rich and so comes from the soul. I've seen this band before, and I was annoyed that I didn't know about this performance so I could have invited friends over! They do the range of music from its origins to present day, with dancers enthusiastically demonstrating traditional and modern dances.
