Youssou N´Dour - Dakar-Kingston - 2010


Youssou N´Dour, one of the most well-known Senegalese singers and composers worldwide, surprises us in 2010 with Dakar-Kingston. A self-confessed admirer of Bob Marley, he has recorded revisions of old and recent songs to the rhythm of reggae, resulting in surprising work if we take into account that Youssou is the master of mbalax music. In fact, the emblematic rhythm of the island of Jamaica has a similar origin to the Senegalese mbalax, if we take into account the rhythms carried by the African population forced to travel.

Produced by Marley's old friend and Wailers member Tyrone Downie, Youssou N'Dour is surrounded by the best: Earl "China" Smith on guitar, Patrice Bart-Williams and singer Ayo, legendary reggae band Morgan Heritage. , and Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) composing the first theme titled "Marley".
