Music Festivals????

I would like to plan a trip around attending a music festival in Senegal, and possibly Dakar specifically, but while I can find a lot of references to the different music festivals in the area, I can't find dates for 2011.

Can anyone point me to some websites that might help?

Thanks so much!

You JUST MISSED the biggest one - Fesman, Dec 11 thru the 31st. It was totally free.

Try Kaay Fecc (let's dance) on google or the Jazz festival in St Louis


St. Petersburg...

It depends on the music your coming for..the next festival is International Choral Festival "The Chorus in unison", reinforcing the international dimension of the 2011 edition. Scheduled for April 30 at 7 May 2011, in Dakar,

After that.......the weather gets very hot, wet and its becomes low season for many.

I'll be in Dakar 23-29 May on a research trip. Would there by chance be any music festivals around that time? - Best wishes. JF
