YOUSSOU N'DOUR: I BRING WHAT I LOVE is a gorgeously photographed, music infused cinematic portrait of world famous Senegalese pop sensation Youssou N'Dour. N'Dour is best known in the West for his collaborations with Bono and Peter Gabriel, however, his legendary career has spanned decades.
In 2004, responding to negative perceptions about his Muslim faith, N'Dour recorded EGYPT, a deeply spiritual album dedicated to a more tolerant view of Islam. In a critical and career-defining moment, the album was awarded the 2004 Grammy® for BEST WORLD MUSIC ALBUM. While Western audiences embraced N'Dour's brave musical message, it encountered a serious religious backlash in his native country of Senegal where N'Dour is considered a national hero.
Combining unprecedented images of Senegal's most sacred Muslim rituals, vibrant performances filmed around the world, and intimate access to N'Dour and his family, I BRING WHAT I LOVE chronicles the difficult path this remarkable artist must take.
