The Dynamic Grammy Winning Diva From Africa, Angelique Kidjo!
Born in Benin (West Africa), Angelique Kidjo is a Grammy award-winning music recording artist deemed “Africa’s premier diva” by Time Magazine. Kidjo’s internationally acclaimed repertoire includes collaborations with various recording artists such as Carlos Santana, Peter Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Josh Groban, Branford Marsalis, Joss Stone, and many more.
Angelique Kidjo offers a banquet of rare musical treats in her new Razor & Tie album, Spirit Rising. Recorded in Boston during a PBS concert at station WGBH, it showcases Kidjo amid a line of special guests that includes Josh Groban, Dianne Reeves, Branford Marsalis and Ezra Koenig.
Angelique’s prior associations with Groban, Reeves and Marsalis have already produced some memorable results. And the presence of singer/guitarist Koenig, from the rock band Vampire Weekend, enhances the proceedings with a seasoning of youthful vigor.
Add to that the dancers of the Tony Award winning Broadway musical FELA!, the Kuumba Singers of Harvard College, the Borromeo String Quartet, a trio of young horn players from Berklee College, and a world-class rhythm section led by the versatile bassist Christian McBride!
