“Elusive Dakar isn’t a place that gets talked about a lot. Everything gets swept out to sea, geniuses as well as rumours and the great wintering sun which holds this city together in blinding mystery.”

Oumar NDAO, Dakar l’Ineffable

Dakar reveals itself as being elusive, it’s an offering to the senses written in disorder. Etymologically speaking Dëkraw, means refuge and takes us on a journey of sound, smells and colourful rhythmic imagery in perpetual transformation. Contrast is at honour here, far from the evenness of occidental cities. Dakar unveils itself as an urban spectacle, a whirlwind of activity conveying an incessant trance.
