Music of Sénégal

Our recent lecture on music took place at Thiès Regional Museum housed in a small old fort.  Our lecturer described traditional uses of music and musical styles.  He brought others with him to demonstrate jembe (drums),  several stringed instruments and the balafon.   At the end of the lecture students had an opportunity to visit the museum that preserves important history of Thiès.
