Youssou N’Dour and The Super Etoile is Africa’s most popular live band. N’Dour is a singer endowed with remarkable range and poise. The New York Times described his voice as an “arresting tenor, a supple weapon deployed with prophetic authority.” N’Dour absorbs the entire Senegalese musical spectrum in his work. Named “African Artist of the Century” by the England’s Folk Roots, N’Dour and his band, The Super Etoile, has made his musical style “Mbalax” famous throughout the world. The Village Voice’s Robert Christgau, dean of American rock critics, has boldly called N’Dour “the world’s greatest pop vocalist” and finds him “the one African moving inexorably toward the world-pop fusion everyone else theorizes about.” Peter Gabriel has proclaimed N’Dour simply as “one of the best alive.” It goes without saying Youssou N’Dour is a great addition to the international artists TITAS Presents brings to Dallas.
