Reviews

On a night in December 2002 at Union Chapel in London, Youssou N’Dour and his all-star band miraculously conjured the atmosphere of the Thiosanne, the legendary nightclub in Dakar where he performs every week for his loyal Sengalese fans. Backed by the rhythms of one of the finest bands to come out of Africa, his soaring, soulful voice and charismatic presence convinced all in attendance that they had seen not only a towering African star, but one of the world’s greatest musical artists. Hearing and seeing is believing. And fortunately, cameras were present on that sensational night to capture the performance for posterity.

SKY FULL OF STARS FOR THIS SHOW! 3 Jun 2004
By applewood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Add all the great moments in all of Youssou's CD's and still this is so much more.
Great performance - Of course you'd expect top quality from Youssou and his band. What a beautiful man, with lovely backup singers, hot percussion, steady driving bass and lilting guitars...A show that is not flashy but full of sincere and joyous showmanship, and rootsy vibes.
Great venue and audience - playing in London in a beautiful chapel/mosque. Accoustically fine, and spacious yet intimate, full of an appreciative crowd, many seemingly from Senegal, all of them on their feet frequently. (I love the part where Yousssou has a man from the front row come up on stage to teach the crowd a dance move).
Great sound and video quality - camera men stayed unobtrusive and the angles and clarity are superb throughout.
This was a wonderful night and this DVD captures it all and shows us the rare quality of Youssou and his Senegalese band. Several times it had me crying tears of joy, eventually i was up dancing around my living room along with the audience, it was almost as good as being there! Good enough until Youssou brings his show to my home town....(Mr N'Dour we have a lovely outdoor stage, just right for dancing under stars on a warm moonlit night)
If you like Youssou, then don't hesitate....
If you like African music, then don't hesitate....
If you like Great music, then don't hesitate....
If you like Life and joy and dance, and light, then don't hesitate....
If You are reading this, then don't hesitate!

Live in London --Youssou N'Dour 19 Dec 2003
By Sharrilynn Wilrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I honestly and truly loved this DVD. I saw Youssou in concert in Cinncinatti, Ohio this year for the first time and this DVD was better than the live concert. He has 3 costume changes and the audience participation is perfect. I wish Peter Gabriel was there for 2 of the songs but the 2 women did a decent job of singing his parts. Youssou's voice was clear and precise and his band gives a performance like no other. I am a huge fan for life and I can't wait to travel to Senegal to visit him in his club. Good luck and I'm sure you will love this DVD as much as I do.

The one I've been waiting for 29 May 2004
By TimInBC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I've been waiting for something that would really show off Youssou n'Dour's soaring voice and his incredibly tight, professional Super Étoile Band. This is it.
There's variety, pace, audience participation, some solos for the band, and most of all there's The Voice, like a soprano saxophone. On a couple of cuts (Liggééy, Yaakaar and Griot's Gaze), the band starts to cook and we move into the realm of "this is really special".
The sound and picture quality are excellent; it's a good room and they did a good job recording it.
My DVD skips and the picture breaks up occasionally on my DVD player, but doesn't do so on the computer so maybe it's my player.
I have seen Youssou live, and this concert is so good that I am not sure I'd want to see him live again - it might not be as good as this performance.

Spectacular 21 Nov 2004
By Mark The African Music Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Didn't want it to end. This DVD was simply enjoyable from start to finish. It is evident that it was professionally made with perfect sound quality and wonderful camera angles. The location backdrop (Islington's Union Chapel London) was perfect. The only way is could be better is to have been filmed in high-def. Cheers.
