Dakar booms with life and this energy can also be found in the creative, artistic and cultural expressions of the city. Many young artists in Dakar took on the role as agents of change of their generation. “100% Dakar” visits fashion designers, Hip Hop musicians, graffiti artists, a photographer, an art blogger, dancers and many other artists and cultural entrepreneurs who stand for creativity, passion, social conscience and a collective, creative fight against all economic and political burdens.

Papa Wemba, Chance Eloko Pamba | Jimmy Glasberg | Zaire | 1996 | 52 min
Papa Wemba’s music – a blend of cultures, sounds and rhythms – transcends borders and nationalities. The singer, who spent half his time in Paris and half in Kinshasa, is also a symbolic figure for the young people of Zaire. Papa Wemba died late last month after collapsing on stage and this re-broadcast is in honour of this legendary musician.
