Born in 1959 in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa, N'Dour began singing at an early age. In 1979, he formed a band which would become The Super Etoile. The group created a modern African pop style which has influenced artists such as Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel, who introduced N'Dour to American and British audiences in 1986.
