What You'll Get
Dubbed Africa's premier diva by both NPR and Time magazine, Angélique Kidjo transforms every genre she tackles -- and she's taken on quite a few. Though she won a Grammy for "Best Contemporary World Music album," she has turned music from the Afropop, R&B, soul, gospel, jazz and Latin traditions into something more vibrant and altogether new. Ranked alongside Nelson Mandela, Haile Selassie and Kofi Annan as an "African icon" by the BBC, Kidjo is equally famous for her human-rights activism. Now this immensely influential artist comes to the Music Center at Strathmore for an evening of high-energy international music, performing her trademark mélange of West African traditions, American R&B, funk and jazz with her sensational band. Hear the extraordinary voice behind global hits like "Agolo," "We We," "Adouma," "Afirika," "Batonga" and "Malaika" live.
