Anastasio and Mathews
Trey Anastasio and Dave Matthews' trip to Dakar, Senegal this past January is documented in an hour-long program and will premier on VH1 on May 8 at 10:00 p.m. EST. In the program, Trey and Dave journey to the capital city for a cross-cultural exchange with seminal West African band Orchestra Baobab. Trey and Dave toured around the Senegalese capital city Dakar, attended an Africa Cup soccer match (where Senegal edged out South Africa 2-1), gave an acoustic performance off the coast of Dakar on Goree Island, watched singer Baaba Maal perform an intimate show (Trey called it "one of the best concert experiences of my life") and then rehearsed and performed with Orchestra Baobab at "Yengoulene," a small club in Dakar.

Log on to now to see exclusive photos of the journey, read an interview with Trey and Dave, and watch exclusive group performance footage with Orchestra Baobab, including Phish's "Bouncing Around The Room."
