A while ago, Youma and I went to an edition of Electrafrique organized by OkayAfrica and KAANI. I wanted to see what the party would be like and if I’d like it. Sure, I wanted to connect with Dakar’s creative scene, and see what Electrafrique would be like. I wanted to see what kind of music it would be and if it would be my style. Of course, I also came to get shots, have fun and create. Let’s get into Electrafrique!
Electrafrique took place at La Maison de la Culture Douta Seck, here in Dakar. I have never attended an Electrafrique party and I thought it would be a great opportunity to do so. I have to be honest, I actually NEVER go out to parties or to clubs. I love staying at home and not deal with all the crazy things that might happen during nightlife. I am glad I did go to Electrafrique and see a different side of Dakar. Especially, Dakar at night, as I do not see any of that often.
dancing & music
Electrafrique was definitely different from what I am used to go to. However, the vibes were amazing. I honestly did not dance that much, because the music is not really my style and I did not know that many songs. On the other hand, that did not stop other people from dancing. I think that the atmosphere allowed everyone to be themselves. Even if plenty of people “couldn’t dance” they danced anyway and had a lot of fun! Which is important. I did not dance that much, but I had a lot of fun making body moves and taking pictures and video’s in between.
If you want to get a taste of how the vibes were during Electrafrique, check out this video I made for Youtube!
It was nice to finally attend a party in Senegal. I do not feel the urge to go out every weekend or every month, but once in a while won’t do no harm. But really though, would you attend a wedding just for food? Let me know why or why not?
