Inspired from the Cuban dance music from the 1940s and ’50s, Senegal-born vocalist Laleh Sosseh created the Star Strap du Dakar soon after Senegal announced its independence in 1960. With Sosseh posting lead vocals with Papa Seck, the group increased to the top echelon of African music. Although they reached their maximum in the past due-’70s, whenever a teenaged Youssou N’Dour was an associate, Sosseh as well as the Celebrity Music group du Dakar continue steadily to inspire dancing making use of their dynamic fusion of African and Latin affects more than 2 decades later.
