Youssou N’Dour—Dakar-Kingston
Ten Reggae Albums By Non-Reggae Stars

Best known in the States for his collaborations with Peter Gabriel (he’s the guy singing in Wolof at the beginning of “In Your Eyes”) and Paul Simon, Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour has been one of the leading voices of Francophone Africa for three decades. In recent years he has worked closely with keyboardist Tyrone Downie of Wailers fame, who brought N’Dour to Jamaica in 2010 for sessions at Tuff Gong Studios with musicians including Mikey Fletcher and Earl “China” Smith, as well as Morgan Heritage. The result was 2010’s aptly titled Dakar-Kingston.
