Life in Senegal has a soundtrack, and the Senegalese sound unmistakably has a Latin vibe. By tracing the bloodlines of slavery, arching from Gorée Island off the coast of Senegal, to North America, South America and the Caribbean, it is possible to begin to understand the long history in the relationship between Senegalese and Cuban music. Where people go, culture follows and where there is culture, there is the song that carries the story of its people.
Music in Senegal, with its strong structure of Latin flavor, continues to evolve with new musicians joining the international circuit every year.
Despite the differences in cultures, the music should feel like home to you. Its the sadness, happiness, hopes and dreams that are a part of every human, a sense of longing and belonging that traveled throughout history and has become the sound of almost everything you hear on the radio and television. Orchestra Baobab is that sound directly from its source, a musical melting pot with the organic ingredients providing an undeniable flavor.
