Tells of African singer Youssou N'Dour's epic journey following the trail left by slaves and by the jazz music they invented. Youssou N'Dour's challenge is to bring back to Africa a jazz repertoire and to sing those tunes on Gorée, the island that today symbolizes the slave trade and stands to commemorate its victims.
