Nuru Kane June 26, 6pm
"Seven years after his last opus "Exil", Nuru Kane comes back with a new album, just the way he is, but with a new sound identity. The charismatic Senegalese singer converts this time to the energy of urban sounds. "Whether natural, cultural or spiritual, the African continent has priceless resources that are coveted by all." This observation was the source of inspiration for Nuru Kane who, faithful to the philosophical principles that have guided him since childhood, intends to translate it into a message of hope for African youth." Jacques Denis
