  1. Un des maîtres du Mbalax, c’est certain, sa musique est unique et j’aime beaucoup, beaucoup la musique sénégalaise, mais pour l’avoir vu à plusieurs reprises en concert je peux dire que la personne humaine est nettement moins sympathique… dommage !!! ;-)

  2. along with the likes of Tinariwen, he is one of the handful of artists who are truly synonymous with the term ‘world music’. I love ‘7 seconds’ with Neneh Cherry.

  3. Youssou N’Dour was some of the first world music I experienced – he opened a new a fantastic music world for me. He has a special place in my musical heart ;-)
