Youssou N'Dour: I Bring What I Love

Youssou N'Dour: I Bring What I Love

Directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi

"Portrait of the Senegalese superstar musician isn’t so much a career overview as a compelling look at his attempts to reconcile politics, spirituality, and fame at a turbulent moment in history." —New York Magazine

Youssou N'Dour: I Bring What I Love is a remarkable film portrait of the legendary artist and humanitarian and the making of his Grammy Award-winning album Egypt. An extraordinary testament to his Muslim faith and an impassioned plea for a more tolerant view of Islam, the film profiles N'Dour with candid insight while providing a timely look at the complex place of music in Islam. This film received the Special Jury Prize at the 2008 Middle East International Film Festival. In Arabic, English, French, and Wolof with English subtitles.
