Troupe Allalake from West Africa
There is a small village in Africa full of artists committed to sharing the music, dance, and culture of their ancestors. Roughly 5 hours from the big city of Dakar the beautiful village known as 'Toubakouta' is full of musicians, dancers, and troupes, one of which you'd most likely hear and see is 'Troupe Allalake.' The night before we were getting ready to leave the group had a show which was full of singing, drumming, and dance. The show was nothing less of spectacular.
