Youssou N’Dour, one of the most acclaimed artists from Africa, will perform for the first time in Romania. The show will take place on July 30 at Arenele Romane in Bucharest, as part of the series of events World Music Masters.
Hailing from Dakar, the capital of Senegal, N’Dour joined the local Star Band which he re-named Super E’toile de Dakar. He was quickly spotted by top artists and worked with Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel on two songs, opening shows for Gabriel on tour. Later, he collaborated with Bruce Springsteen, Tracy Chapman and Sting, as part of the international tour Human Rights Now!
In 1991, N’Dour was nominated for a Grammy for his album Eyes Open, while several years later he won the trophy for best world music album for his disc Egypt. In 1994 he released the single 7 Seconds with Neneh Cherry, which stayed in the charts in Great Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Russia and Poland for half a year. All in all, the African artist has released 26 albums, 9 compilations and toured all over the world.
