Dakar is the busy and colourful capital of Senegal situated on the west coast of Africa. The city has many lively and busling markets, a cosmopolitan city centre, and is renown for its music, one famous exponent being Youssou N`Dour. Dakar stakes a healthy claim to being the culinary capital of West Africa and is one of the best cities in West Africa for live music and clubbing. There are fine museums in the city; the IFAN Museum has an impressive collection of masks, statues and musical instruments from all over West Africa.
