In Conversation With Youssou N'Dour

Youssou N'Dour with Tommy Vaudecrane

Moderator: Tommy Vaudecrane

Activist, singer, cultural ambassador, Youssou N'Dour is all of those things, but he's also one of the precursors and catalysts of the current explosion of creativity happening simultaneously in East, West and South Africa across multiple creative areas and disciplines. Who are his favourite new acts amongst the current African wave? What does he think of Techno? What keeps him motivated and creatively fresh after all these years? All this and much more to be revealed in an intimate session with a true maestro.
