With a soaring tenor that brims with passion and nuance, singer-songwriter Youssou NDOUR 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, NDOUR returns for a rare stateside appearance, performing with his band, the Super Étoile, for two nights only.
