The cultural anthropologist Sophie “Sabar” Schouwenaar is a Dutch lady who is a leading exponent of the ancient Senegalese dance called Sabar. Sophie talks about her interest for Sabar and Senegal. We see Sophie in Amsterdam where she lives but we also see her in Senegal doing her “thing” in a packed village square. Sophie has danced on stage with de crème de la crème of Senegalese music including Youssou N’Dour!
