RETURN TO GORÉE / RETOUR A GORÉE
Tells of African singer Youssou N’Dour’s epic journey following the trail left by slaves and by the jazz music they invented. Youssou N’Dour’s challenge is to bring back to Africa a jazz repertoire and to sing those tunes n Gorée, the island that today symbolizes the slave trade and stands to commemorate its victims.
