Rhythmic poetry, known as tassu, has been a part of Senegalese culture since ancient times. Historically, tassu was used to air political discontent of all sorts, from social life to marriage to the environment. This political content continues today, but tassu also performs roles as general entertainment and as ritual function in ceremonies such as marriage – one of the tassoukat (performers) best known for the latter being Aby Ngana Diop.

Ритмическая поэзия "тассу" с древних времен является частью сенегальской культуры. Исторически тассу использовалась для раздувания политического недовольства всех видов, от общественной жизни, до брака и проблем с окружающей средой. Это политическое содержание продолжается и сегодня, но тассу также выполняет роль развлечения и имеет ритуальные функции, например, в таких церемониях, как бракосочетание. Одним из самых известных тасукат (исполнителей тассу) является Аби Нгана Диоп.
