Angelique Kidjo

“African rhythms, a bit of funk, a bit of rhythm’n’blues, a splash of jazz and a touch of Latino and French and suddenly we’re talking the music of Angelique Kidjo.” - The Arts Center
Angelique Kidjo’s music never fails to excite and embrace audiences. She is an African-born singer-songwriter who reminds us all through her unique sound that we can be drawn together, no matter how different or far flung we are. She even sings in four languages - Fon, the tongue of her father’s people of Ouidah, French the language of her adopted home, Yoruba from her mother, and English. Her latest album “Djin Djin” has recently won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Music Album and an Naacp Image Award for Outstanding World Music Album. Come and be uplifted by this multi-talented UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
