Kirinene Ngueelne : Exclusive interview with Simon Sene (2nd March 2019)

March 2, 2019

Kirinene Ngueelne is a new weekly chat show presented by DJ Mac (Macaire Ndiaye). Each week, DJ Mac invites a new Seereer/Senegambian personality to chat about their life and work (similar to our old Cosaan Seereer programme). This show - which is broadcast in Seereer goes out every Saturday from 16:00 to 17:00 GMT. You can also listen to DJ Mac on Setsima which goes out every Saturday from 17:00 - 18:00 GMT - right after Kirinene Ngueelne. Setsima is broadcast in Wolof and follows the same format as Kirinene Ngueelne. DJ Mac can also be heard on Jeetaay which now goes out every Thursday from 21:00 GMT. 

On this show, DJ Mac chats with the legendary Seereer artist Simon Sene - generally referred to as the ambassador of Seereer culture.  Simon and band were holding an event at the Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar (French: Université Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar (UCAD)).
