When it comes to culture, Senegal is a very lively country, as proved by the two main events which have been taking place there since years; those are the Jazz Festival in Saint Louis and the Biennale of Art in Dakar.
Senegal, a fascinating country
From Gorée, the island of slaves, to Djoudj Park, paradise for millions of seasonal and migratory birds. From the colonial atmosphere of Saint Louis, to the holy city of Touba. From the Peul nomads of the north to the fortified houses of the Diola in Casamance.Learn more about Senegal
Festivals and cultural events
Music and mask festivals characterise Senegalese life. "Saint Louis Jazz" is the best known event: an important one that jazz and Africa enthusiasts cannot miss. In the villages of Casamance is preserved the use of masks. In particular, the Kumpo mask coated with Ronier Palm leaves.Discover festivals
