Description

Born in Benin in West Africa, Angélique Kidjo—the Grammy-winning artist hailed as “Africa’s premier diva” by Time magazine—has shown that the joy and passion of African music is universal. As one of the continent’s most internationally celebrated female musical exports, she is a powerful singer and tireless performer.

Her music draws from African traditions and elements of American soul, funk, rap, jazz, Brazilian samba, reggae, and Cuban and Puerto Rican salsa, creating a perfect blend of world music. Kidjo, who has collaborated with artists such as Carlos Santana, Peter Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Josh Groban, Branford Marsalis and Joss Stone, is known for her dynamic and uplifting sound. Through her music and her commitment to advocacy, she exemplifies unity, peace and diversity.
