    Senegal Salsa

    Watched this film today on the influence of Afro Cuban music on Senegalese pop.

    Senegal Salsa :
    Director: Moustapha Ndoye | Producer: Florence Arrigoni Neri
    Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 2000 | Story Teller's Country: France

    Synopsis: In the 1950s and 60s, the entire Senegalese nation was fired by the Afro-Cuban rhythms of salsa. It was the era when, after obtaining independence, the country faced the future with optimism. Dakar was the center of African cultural crossover with its Festival of Black Arts. Salseros such as Pape Seck, Maguette Ndiaye, Lynx Tall, Amara Touré, Mady Konaté, Labba Sosseh were at the height of their art. But in time, confidence in the future dwindled, the legendary locations vanished, the great musicians passed away. Against a background of archive footage, Senegalese artists reminisce nostalgically about the salsa years.

    "Every onlooker is either a coward or a traitor." — Frantz Fanon

    “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.” Frederick Douglass
