Icon: Youssou N’Dour

By Keith Harris, Contributor

Your first exposure to Youssou N'Dour's soaring tenor keen likely came on the coda to Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes."

With a biography at least as tragically complex as Fela's, Franco lived large, died sadly, and left hundreds of hours of some of the world's… more »
