MODOU TOURE, Heir of the legendary group Touré Kunda, the first African group to achieve worldwide fame in the 1980s, Modou Touré was born into music. His voice strikingly echoes that of his father, Ousmane Touré, who was the inspiration for his choice of career. Passionate about music from a tender age, he was to be found regularly singing up a storm and playing the drums under his neighbours’ windows in the modest district of HLM4 in Dakar, where he spent his childhood.
