Youssou N’Dour Tours North America

Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour kicks off a rare, two-week tour of North America, starting at Terminal 5 in New York City this Sunday night. The tour then heads west for shows in Boulder, Mesa, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Seattle, and Vancouver, before returning east for stops in Montreal, Toronto, Ann Arbor, and Columbus. See below for all of the currently scheduled shows and tickets.

Youssou N’Dour, whom NPR has named among the world’s 50 great voices, released five albums on Nonesuch Records over the span of a decade. His first record on Nonesuch, Joko (The Link), in 2000, was followed by Nothing’s in Vain (Coono du réér) in 2002. In 2004, he released Egypt, an exploration of his Islamic faith that would go on to win the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Music and became the subject for the documentary film I Bring What I Love; Nonesuch released the film’s soundtrack in 2010. The Washington Post described N’Dour’s 2007 studio album, Rokku Mi Rokka (Give and Take), as “intricate, indigenous, and characteristically exhilarating.”
