Senegal has always been a musical powerhouse and this year they’ve stepped up to host the World Festival of Black Arts and Culture. Hometown heros such as Youssou N’Dour will headline, as well as a who’s who of accomplished musicians from all parts of Africa.

Senegal is the land of teranga, which means hospitality and permeates every aspect of daily life. You’ll spend a fair amount of time greeting people, inquiring about their health and family, and wishing them a good day. Best of all, you may be invited for a meal, as food plays a big part in welcoming guests. This Senegalese Soup is a lovely accompaniment to great conversations with new friends.
