Event Description

plus Sekoya Revisited

A vocalist fluent in four languages, Grammy Award winning Angélique Kidjo is one of the world’s most recognizable and respected musical forces. Kidjo’s music draws from the rich sounds and rhythms of the West African nation of Benin, where she was born. She has shared her unique combination of Afro-funk, reggae, samba, salsa, gospel, Congolese rumba, and Caribbean zouk at music festivals across the world. Her best-selling CDs include collaborations with the likes of Branford Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson, Bono, Herbie Hancock, and Carlos Santana. Twice she has won the “Best Contemporary World Music Album” Grammy Award. Her most recent album, Eve, was inspired by the Kenyan women she met as a UNICEF ambassador, and the album features 10 different African choirs to showcase their voices. In 2002, she was named one of the “Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World” by the Guardian. Passionately musical and restlessly creative, Kidjo’s performances reinforce her position as “Africa’s premier diva” (Time Magazine).
