From Dakar, Senegal

I lift my voice so I can show you
There's so much more in life
We can do

Because the world has another face
Because the world has another face
Open your eyes
Open your eyes


From Africa, in Dakar, Senegal I feel I have to share this song from Angelique Kidjo, though my favourite one is Babalao

Hi Rose! The embed player isn't working for me, and I can't find the song under "Open your eyes" on youtube... could you provide the link? Thanks : )

We hope you are enjoying your time there (or did!).

At TESOL New Orleans, I talked to a really intelligent Senegalese guy who was studying Caribbean literature believe it or not! We chatted away in English, in French and got around to music. Him and his friend both mentioned another singer - going to have to sleep on it and the name will come to me.


Going now to look up some Senegalese music on! Been using it lots, thanks to you!

I'm staying at my sister's in Dakar now. I'm writing from there or rather "here".

We'll be here until next Monday. I'm almost 100% sure that the Senegalese musician that guy talked you about is no other than the most famous singer & composer in Senegal and maybe in much of Africa as well. His name is Youssou N'Dour. He became quite famous worlwide after releasing "7 seconds", a song produced by him and  Neneh Cherry, a huge international hit in 1994.

Wow, Rose, what are you doing in Dakar? Such an interesting life!

Comment by Roselink on April 20, 2011 at 7:19pm
Well, sorry, I should have guessed you've already heard about Mr. N'Dour. I have also seen The Visitor and I agree with you, it's quite recommendable.

Comment by Roselink on April 20, 2011 at 7:30pm

Dear Ellen, my sister is married to a Senegalese teacher of Spanish at the University of Dakar. He is also a notarized  translator.

My sister also works here for theSpanish Foreign Office, My sister has been living here for almost 20 years and this is my first visit to Senegal, she usually goes to Spain on holidays to visit my parents and brothers so I haven't had many opportunities to come. It was about time I paid her a visit, don't you think?

I have just deleted unwillingly a comment by David. I'm soooooooo tired that I clicked on the wrong key. I wanted to add a comment about Senegalese musicians. I have asked my brother in law, Amodou, a Senegalese himself, and he adds the following to the list. Was one of these?

Ismaël Lô

Cheick Lo

Thione Seck

Coumba Gawlo

Omar Pene

Never worry!


I'm going to spend some time looking these up. The only one that rings a bell is Cheick Lo.


I wrote about N'Dour and posted a song with lyric sheet herein our Int. Music forum area. Neat song with Peter Gabriel.
