Angelique Kidjo

Four-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest artists in international music today, a creative force with fourteen albums and innumerable accolades to her name. Time Magazine calls her “Africa’s premier diva” and named her one of the most influential people in the world. Kidjo cross-pollinates the West African traditional sounds of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America. 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. An internationally recognized humanitarian, the BBC, Forbes, and The Guardian have all highlighted her importance to the people of the African continent and beyond.
