Youssou NDOUR

North America, Asia, Australia, South America

Throughout his decades long career, Youssou NDOUR’s roots in Senegalese traditional music and griot storytelling have remained the hallmark of his artistic personality. A daring innovator and staunch protector of the unique “Dakar overgroove”, NDOUR and his high-energy Super Étoile manage to fashion a sound which is both characteristically Senegalese and outward-looking, a contagiously exciting synthesis of musical languages. Rolling Stone called NDOUR’s stunning tenor “a voice so extraordinary that the history of Africa seems locked inside it,” and the Super Étoile has been lauded in The Village Voice as “the greatest band in the world.”
