More information about Angélique Kidjo tickets

Angélique Kidjo's latest project; her reinterpretation of the Talking Heads classic album 'Remain In Light' - showcases thrilling new arrangements of the iconic songs. She takes the classics such as 'Crosseyed and Painless,' 'Once in a Lifetime,' and 'Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)' and reinterprets them with electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals.

'Kidjo's element was joyful empowerment: the joy of an all-conquering voice and a righteous uplifting spirit' (New York Times)

'The Benin-born Grammy winner dove deeper into the African grooves that Talking Heads mined from Fela Kuti on the 1980 LP. She put the 'festive' back into 'Festival' (Nashville Scene)

As a performer, her striking voice, stage presence and fluency in multiple cultures and languages have won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America.
