Youssou NDOUR graces the stage of the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, joined by his band the Super Étoile de Dakar. With a soaring tenor that brims with passion and nuance, the Dakar-born singer-songwriter is a global music icon and tireless cultural ambassador. 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 one of the most revered figures on the world stage.

RAMADAN 
Prayer Space 
 
As the performances of Youssou NDOUR take place during the holy month of Ramadan, we welcome those who wish to practice evening prayers to do so on our premises. Please let theater ushers know; they will direct you to a room for prayer in the BAM building and then guide you back to your seats in the opera house.
