West Africa: Midnight Drumming Senegal Style

Comments Off on West Africa: Midnight Drumming Senegal Style

Last Friday night, Josh and I enjoyed dinner and post-grub card-playing with a few friends. We gave one buddy a lift back to his apartment around 1:30 a.m. and on the way there, we encountered the scene in the video above. Click to watch!

About a hundred Senegalese people were gathered around a group of drummers and an emcee-type lady, who was clad in all purple and talking into a microphone and dancing. I slowed the car down and asked our friend, who’s Senegalese, what was happening and he said these types of late-night dance/drum street performances happen all the time. I must have made it obvious I wanted to get a closer look because he suggested we stop for a few minutes. I’m not sure I completely stopped the car before I scrambled out and into the crowd.

Add this to the list of neat experiences we’ve unexpectedly stumbled upon in my dear Senegal.
