Afro-Beat... There is a clear distinction between Afro-Beat and other things. Youssou N'dour is definitely a kick ass bandleader and singer, but his music is based more on traditional Senegalese stuff in my opinion. Maybe there is an album that Youssou N'dour sings on with an Afro-Beat band, but I've not heard it. Let me know which album you're talking about.
