Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 06/12/2009
"[With] crisp, soaring, polyrhythmic music....When the man's onstage, joined by his supremely confident band, it makes for happy viewing..."
Box Office - 06/12/2009
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Fans and newcomers to N'dour's music will be equally enthralled by the finely observed, patiently wrought documentary..."
A.V. Club - 06/25/2009
"N'Dour's love for his faith, family, and homeland are undoubtedly sincere and touching..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/02/2009
"[I]t's most persuasive when it speaks through his music, which is both dazzling and full of fascinating detail."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/26/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's absorbing....N'Dour is the sort of humanitarian bridge that we need in a world so sharply divided."
Rolling Stone - 04/15/2010
"The shots of his trek to the holy city of Touba are as beautiful as N'Dour's keening wail."
The music and life of iconic performer Youssou N'Dour drive this song-filled documentary. Although N'Dour has drawn fans in his native Senegal and across the world for decades, his 2005 album, EGYPT, drew criticism for its Sufi Muslim themes. YOUSSOU N'DOUR: I BRING WHAT I LOVE chronicles two years in the artist's life as he attempts to spread his message of tolerance across the world.
