A voice for all times
Youssou NDOUR is, simply, one of the world’s greatest singers. Yet the West African star—a TIME 100 icon who first entered Americans’ ears through Peter Gabriel’s 1986 “In Your Eyes”—has always stayed close to his roots, with Senegalese traditions and griot storytelling as enduring hallmarks of his artistic personality. To Spoleto, NDOUR brings an acoustic one-night-only performance comprising traditional melodies, mbalax rhythms, and never-before-heard compositions that speak to his range and daring innovation.
