“A wildly intoxicating musical brew.” – MOJO

Vocalist Angélique Kidjo is a bona fide world music superstar, whose highly personal mix of styles combines powerful West African grooves, raw American R&B, driving samba beats, and sophisticated jazz harmonies. The BBC has included the Grammy winner in its list of Africa’s 50 most iconic figures. A riveting performer, “[Kidjo’s] supercharged pipes have never sounded better, her irresistible energy and joie de vivre never more palpable” (Los Angeles Times). Her live shows are upbeat, energizing and known to have the crowd on their feet and dancing before the end of the first song. Dance space available!
