"One of the great singers, not just of Africa but the world."--Guardian

Senegalese superstar Youssou N'Dour's latest release, Nothing's in Vain (Coono du reer), reaffirmed his love for roots music and the rich rhythms of traditional acoustic instruments. His myriad fans worldwide applauded this impressive direction, which showed nary a trace of pop influences, synthesizers, or crossover attempts.

In concert you'll hear Youssou N'Dour tapping the deep, soulful spirit he achieved during his recording sessions in Dakar. Be there when Youssou's inimitable tenor voice soars again on our stage, transporting you as he explores his musical heritage.
