ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

The Prince of the Medina of Dakar is back with his latest release, Africa Rekk. Youssou N’Dour was serving as Minister of Culture and then Tourism in the government of Senegal’s President Macky Sall and he had to put his artistic activities on hold, but his current status as ‘Minister Advisor to the President’ has given him more leeway. And Africa Rekk truly is a Pan-African album, an umbilical cord that links all of Africa. The credits feature Akon and producer Hakim and Fally Ipupa, ‘the Kinshasa Di Caprio’, who embodies that Africa where tradition and modernity meet, an Africa where keyboards and machines merge with tama, balafon and djembé.
