Sénégal, the Wild West

Found on the farthest western tip of the African continent, this small country packs just as big of a punch as its neighbors.  Mbalax music, also native to Gambia, is the popular form of dance music and Kiara (who is unfortunately alone again!) will be playing some of the most popular Mbalax musicians including Youssou N’Dour, Thione Seck and Baaba Maal (who is more popular globally for his adventures in other styles of music).
