Dubbed “The West African Sinatra” (New York Newsday), the Senegalese-born singer Youssou N’Dour is one of the most exciting and universally appealing musicians since Bob Marley, combining African musical traditions with world-pop inspiration.
This remarkable concert combines N’Dour’s divine vocals and Senegalese rhythms with the hauntingly lush orchestral arrangements of Egyptian and Arabian devotional music. The New York Times called the collaboration “a statement of trans-Saharan African unity, a profession of Islamic faith and, most of all, a collection of humble, loving affirmations, with strings shadowing and fluttering around N’Dour’s exquisite vocals.”
