Abéné is home to around 5,000 people. It is the last undeveloped rural seaside village in Senegal. Nestled on the Atlantic coast, it’s just twelve kilometers from the Gambian border.
Abéné is a melting pot of different religions, cultures, and tribes. Yet they are united in their love of their village, their music, and their traditions.
Every year, the village plays host to Abéné Festivalo – a feast of music, dance, and theatre. Visitors, musicians, and performers from all around the world come to Abéné to experience this celebration of joy and kinship.
