"This short documentary was made for my master research in Dakar, Senegal. I was there during 4 months doing my research on sabardancing. This documentary serves a an introduction to my master's thesis."
This video of Senegalese dancing & drumming was produced by a Dutch woman for her master’s thesis. It shows outdoor scenes of men drumming and women performing traditional Sabar dancing . It also documents changes in Sabar dancing as men do this dance for tourists on city streets. This video also has some interior and exterior of some Senegalese houses, For instance, there is a shot of children eating communally. In addition to the dancing&drumming, the clothing styles are great!
