In the States, he's best known for his stirring vocals on Peter Gabriel's 1986 ballad "In Your Eyes." But in his native Senegal, Youssou N'Dour is regarded as a national treasure. He's been dubbed "one of the most beloved artists in the entire continent of Africa" by Rolling Stone, he's served as the country's culture minister and he even made a run for the presidential seat in 2012. N'Dour's signature Grammy-winning sound blends traditional Senegalese mbalax dance rhythms with hip-hop, jazz and Latin beats. The internationally-celebrated singer, composer and percussionist has performed with artists like Paul Simon, Tracy Chapman and Sting and has been the subject of two music-minded documentaries. He'll bring four decades' worth of musical expertise and globe-trotting experiences to the stage. Learn More
Eva Yerbabuena is famed for her speed, power and dramatic footwork. Inspired by poetry, this show presents the flamenco superstar at her most elegant, emotive best. Accompanied by four dancers and her critically acclaimed ensemble of musicians she delivers an unforgettable tour de force performance, which has left Spanish audiences in raptures. Yerbabuena says that “Lluvia” (Rain) is “born on a gray day of pure melancholy,” and in it she has endeavored to explore her beginnings. She predicts that some people who believe they know her will feel a little uncomfortable although “Lluvia” reflects who really she is, her essence. This work “is a tribute to melancholy and coldness, to being alive, to the endlessness of life”.
