“A singer with a voice so extraordinary that the history of Africa seems locked inside it.” Rolling Stone

For decades, singer-songwriter and activist Youssou NDOUR has been a mesmerizing voice for West Africa. He and his band concoct a sublime mixture of compulsive rhythms, jangling guitars, Senegalese musical traditionalism, Cuban-influenced jazz and funk. His supple, golden tenor—named one of the world’s 50 great voices by NPR—not only resonates with the griot lineage into which he was born, but engages the wider world in causes of human rights and food security. Making his Hop debut, NDOUR brings a revolutionary, rousing musical spirit. Runtime: 1h30m
