Fri., June 12, 9:30 p.m., Harvard Exit, Youssou Nâ€™dour: I Bring What I Love Itâ€™s with not a small amount of embarrassment that I admit that, prior to watching this doc, my only knowledge of Youssou Nâ€™dour was his â€œIn Your Eyesâ€ duet with Peter Gabriel for Say Anything. Iâ€™m probably not alone there, which I expect will make Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyiâ€™s portrait of the Sengalese singer and political activist that much more compelling to Western audiences. But what sets I Bring What I Love apart from other musician-centric documentaries is that in avoiding hagiography, it becomes something much more novel: a nuanced exploration of Islam that avoids the topic of terrorism altogether. In 2004, Nâ€™dour released Egypt, a collection of Sufi praise-hymns in the vein of his griot roots, and while he performed the album in front of adoring, and also, secular European audiences, sales of the album in his native and predominantly Muslim Senegal tanked. Vasarhelyi follows Nâ€™dour, one of Africaâ€™s most treasured musicians, as he attempts and ultimately fails to negotiate the fault lines between his profession, his faith, and the rigid traditions that determine how and when that faith is celebrated.
