Music — Youssou N’Dour 9/12-13 #NextWave FESTIVAL BAM

The Senegalese singer-songwriter makes a rare stateside appearance, returning to BAM after headlining Muslim Voices: Arts & Ideas during BAM’s 2009 Spring Season.

With a soaring tenor that brims with passion and nuance, singer-songwriter Youssou N’Dour is a global music icon.  An early emissary of the mbalax style—a blend of bubbling Senegalese griot percussion, Wolof lyrics, and Afro-Cuban influences—he has gone on to become a tireless cultural ambassador and one of the most revered figures on the world stage. Last at BAM in 2009, N’Dour returns for a rare stateside appearance, performing with his band, the Super Étoile, for two nights only.
