We booked the classes through Anaando Tours, and although we arrived late (not our tour guides fault) the class was a highpoint in our two-day tour around Dakar. My husband was completely enthralled and the group really was helpful to him. A great experience.

Drumming lessons with Ibou were a big part of my amazing experience in Dakar. Ibou was a wonderful teacher--both patient and encouraging. Playing in the garden was beautiful and I enjoyed every minute of learning three different rhythms. Ibou also connected me with a dance...More
