The music of Yous­soupha Sidibe is deeply infused with a long­ing for the full real­iza­tion of divine love in this world. Youssoupha’s musi­cal career began over twenty years ago in his home of Sene­gal, West Africa, where he was trained as a Kora player at the National Music Con­ser­va­tory of Sene­gal. His music fuses tra­di­tional West African sounds on the Kora, with the Sufi devo­tional chant­ing of the Sene­galese Baay Faal com­mu­nity. The angelic sounds of the Kora, an indige­nous harp, soul­fully carry Youssoupha’s devo­tional lyrics sung in Wolof, Ara­bic, French and Eng­lish.
