Experiencing the Arts in Senegal

On May 22 and 23 we spent time experiencing the arts in Senegal, specifically music and dance. On Thursday we visited the Centre Culturele Blaise Senghor in Dakar. At the center we were hosted by professional musicians and dancers. Some of us played music and others danced under the tutelage of the Senegalese artists. On Friday we visited the Village Artisanal in Thiés where everyone got a chance to practice the djembé.

You can access some video from our day at the Cultural Center here.
