Youssou N’dour is an artist who truly transcends his music. An esteemed figure in his native Senegal, he caught the world’s attention through his 1994 hit “Seven Seconds” alongside Neneh Cherry. This led to collaborations with the likes of Tracy Chapman, Paul Simon, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Peter Gabriel and more, making him a true, far-reaching reference point for African music in the international consciousness.
