    Youssou NDOUR

“NDOUR has created a musical context that’s as large with possibilities as his sinuous, spine tingling singing!”
- Rolling Stone
“The kind of world pop in which the blend of Western pop and African tradition sounds so organic that to talk about the different elements is to miss the whole.”
- Washington Post
“African rock’s great global star, he has found the most graceful and purposeful balance between the local and the international!”
- The New York Times
 “Youssou NDOUR has been called ‘the African voice of the century’ and ‘one of the world’s greatest singers.’ That may suggest a whiff of hyperbole, but not in the case of NDOUR, who has been thrilling audiences with his contemporized versions of Senegalese mbalax music for nearly three decades!”
- Los Angeles Times

KNIGHT CONCERT HALL
“African rock’s great global star, he has found the most graceful and purposeful balance between the local and the international!”
- The New York Times

Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter and activist Youssou NDOUR makes his Arsht Center debut! Named one of the world’s 50 great voices by NPR, the Senegalese superstar’s vibrant vocals anchor powerful songs that have made him the world’s leading performer of mbalax, his country’s music that fuses classic African praise-singing, percussion, and guitar-based pop.

Throughout a thirty-year recording 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.”
