Angélique Kidjo

SEE EVENT DETAILS
A true transnational artist, Angelique Kidjo's African roots reflect brightly throughout her music. Heavily influenced by South African legend Miriam Makeba, Kidjo also absorbed the influences of the American popular artists from her youth, such as James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Jimi Hendrix. In the '80s, she was among a new wave of African performers blending Western pop music with traditional African forms. The creative result was a revitalized world music, both entertaining and socially conscious.

2016 Grammy Award-winner Angélique Kidjo has gained an international following with her unique ability to seamlessly weave West African traditions, funk, jazz and R&B into a sound all her own. Along with her outstanding voice and the celebrity status as “Africa’s premier diva,” Angélique has become one of international music’s most notable artists.
