Last Saturday there was an “Soirée africa, stand up!” at Le Bourg. This started with a showing of the film Fangafrika, a documentary about African hip hop and rap, which followed by a percussion concert (with people from the audience coming on stage both as musicians and as dancers), and finally ended with a DJ playing African music (though I didn’t stay for that part).

What was “funny” to see was how a trip to Senegal was advertised in flyers. One of the things included in such an organized journey was a trip to a village which was guaranteed not to have electricity or running water. Maybe the company can boost its sales further by also guaranteeing a minimum quota of HIV positive people and a certain number of children dying from malnutrition.
