It is possible, that the afro rhythms developed to distract the people from their hard work under the burning sun. One person beat the drums and the rest worked to that beat.
The pace stayed the same, the labour was easier to manage and it was almost fun.
We can still see this effect now, when a group of drummers play together. We tune to their beat, go with the rhythm and feel how the joy spreads.
On this Sunday afternoon, we can get a whiff of the world of Senegal, a country full of sun and embers. We can feel the vibrations, taste their food and refresh ourselves with typical beverages. And if up to now, you thought men that dance are ridiculous, you can learn something new here. The musicians from SAF SAP New Generation move like predators, feline, masculine and with a breath-taking physical presence.
