The festival is growing and it’s pretty awe-inspiring, how closely we got to work with Doudou Ndiaye Rose. This year we got to perform with him twice, one at the Biscuiterie and once on a huge stage with Dakar Fashion Week. The international drummers were of course top-notch and all I had to do is just feel the rhythm and bust into it. But I also had support form my fellow Sabliste-sister Aida, which made everything much more fun.
