“When “You” gives a concert, everything jumps: he brings entire stadiums to their feet. Fusing traditional Senegalese percussion and griot singing with Afro-Cuban and indigenous dance/pop flavors that fluidly cross borders and genres, Youssou N’Dour is a passionate singer and composer who leads one of Africa’s greatest bands.

A true voice of his generation, Youssou is known as much for his musical talents as for his strong political advocacy. After running for Senegal’s presidential seat in 2012, Youssou earned a spot on TIME magazine’s annual list of “the hundred men and women whose power, talent, or moral examples are transforming the world.” – University Musical Society
