Throughout a 30-year recording career, Youssou N’Dour’s roots in Senegalese traditional music and griot storytelling have remained the hallmark of his artistic personality. Transforming his native mbalax music with influences from Cuban rumba, reggae, hip hop, jazz and soul, he is a daring innovator and staunch protector of the unique “Dakar overgroove.” N’Dour and his high-energy band Super Etoile fashion a sound that is both characteristically Senegalese and outward-looking—a contagiously exciting synthesis of musical languages.
