    • Synopsis
    • This musical road-movie tells of African singer Youssou N’Dour’s epic journey following the trail left by the blacks slaves and the jazz music they invented. Youssou N’Dour’s challenge is to bring back to Africa a jazz repertoire and to sing those tunes in Gorée, the island that today symbolizes the slave trade and stands to commemorates its victims. Guided in his travel by blind pianist Moncef Genoud, N’Dour travels across the United States and Europe. Accompanied by some of the world’s most exceptional musicians, they meet people and well known figures, and create, through concerts, encounters and debates, music which transcends cultural division.
