We had an amazing time last Saturday listening to the mesmerising voice of Baaba Maal – and his group of unbelievable percussionists, singers and dancers.

The music flew us to Senegal – the music & rhythm that is quite familiar to me – it reminded me of those times I spent learning Arabic music in Tunis and the parties we had with Senegalese and Mauritanian friends sipping tea and having long discussions during those Ramadan nights.
