The adoption of safeguarding plans for traditional music marks the project’s success where local communities have been sensitized, musical traditions inventoried, a database and a collection of documents created. Senegal’s objective has been achieved, following eighteen months of implementation aimed at the safeguarding of traditional music in Senegal, accompanying various events of social life (rituals and celebrations related to the birth, death, initiation, agriculture and fishing).
