Early track of Youssou n'Dour, who was born in Dakar in 1959 and began singing as a child performer at neighborhood gatherings in the tough Medina section of Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. He took formally to the stage at age 12 and by his mid-teens was singing regularly with the Star Band, the most successful group in Senegal at that time. In 1979, he formed his own ensemble, the Etoile de Dakar, which, by 1981, had evolved into The Super Etoile. The most famous band in Africa, The Super Etoile, guided by Youssou N'Dour has crafted and invented a thoroughly modern African pop style, one which has gone on to influence artists as diverse as Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon. N'Dour is today considered as the most famous African singer in the world.

Youssou N'dour - Seven Seconds Away
NEW YORK, USA, 17 June 2009 UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Youssou NDour is often credited with introducing the music of Africa to countless new audiences. Now the innovative Senegalese singer, composer and producer is the subject of a new documentary film, I Bring What I Love, currently making the rounds on the film festival circuit and in cinemas. Director and producer Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyis cameras followed Mr. Ndour for three years, documenting family life, concert appearances around the world, the infectious energy of Senegal and his Sufi Muslim faith. The resulting music-driven journey unfolds at an extraordinary moment in Ndours career, when his most personal, spiritual album to date sparks controversy at home when it is released. Mr. Ndour set out to win back his home audience with the transcendent optimism of his music, and his reputation as a defender of human rights in general and the rights of children in particular. The Convention on the Rights of the Child says that all children have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. I think the film is completely in synch with UNICEF's [thinking] because UNICEF speaks not only about children, but about the responsibilities parents have. Also, countries and governments are obliged to ensure children's rights. And I think that in this film you see clearly the role parents have in helping their children grow up, said Mr. Ndour in an interview. To read the full story, visit www.unicef.org
Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour stars in a documentary titled 'Youssou N'Dour; I Bring What I Love' focusing on his role as a statesman and cultural symbol for the African continent. He sat down with Q host Jian Ghomeshi to talk about the film.

Trailer for film Youssou N'Dour: I bring what I love by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi. Senegalese pop sensation Youssou Ndour has spent the last 20 years in the spotlight as a world-renowned musician and the iconic representative "voice of Africa". At the height of his career, Youssou, became frustrated by the negative perception of his Muslim faith and composed Egypt, a deeply spiritual album dedicated to a more tolerant view of Islam. It was a critical and career-defining moment. Ndours brave musical message was wholeheartedly embraced by Western audiences but ignited serious religious controversy in his homeland of Senegal. Combining unprecedented images of Senegals most sacred Muslim rituals, vibrant concert performances filmed around the world and intimate access to Ndour and his family, I Bring What I Love chronicles the difficult journey Youssou must undertake to assume his true calling. Youssou Ndour is a voice of hope and tolerance, a modern day moral and political leader whose message transcends music but remains grounded in the universality of faith.
