Three-time Grammy winner Angélique Kidjo is a true global superstar who has recorded 13 albums and performed at top venues around the world. Born in Benin, Kidjo and her band will celebrate the electrifying rhythms, vocals and sounds of Africa, with music from throughout Kidjo’s storied career, including music from her two most recent projects: a celebration of the great Celia Cruz, and music from her re-imagining of the Talking Heads’ "Remain in Light" album.
The conversation will be led by Lauren Eldridge Stewart, assistant professor of Ethnomusicology.
this was a very inspiring way to spend my lunch hour - esp since I could not attend her evening performance.
I was so happy to attend this amazing event and looking forward to Angelique's performance at the Sheldon! Thanks Wash U what a special treat for all that attended! Her energy was spectacular! THANKS!
I thought Angelique' Kidjo was wonderful! Her activism and ability to get things done was inspiring.
Also, being a musician myself, I felt she had some beautiful, profound observations on songwriting, performing, and the music business. All around it was a wonderful experience and I was happy I was able to ask her a question (and she gave a long detailed, informative answer). Fantastic!
