Angélique Kidjo: Grammy-Winning Afrobeat Star
Born in Benin, West Africa, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Angélique Kidjo -- dubbed Africa's premier diva by both NPR and Time Magazine -- specializes in putting her fresh, personal spin on every genre she tackles, from R&B, soul, gospel and jazz to Latin and world music, Afropop, contemporary classical and everything in between. Winner of more than 20 prestigious international awards for both her music and her human-rights activism, Kidjo's set for a busy 2014 with the release of her autobiography and a new disc, Eve, dedicated to the women of her home continent and based on the chants of traditional women's choirs. Her music's been heard on numerous soundtracks, and she's collaborated with everyone from Bono and John Legend to Philip Glass and Dave Matthews. Now based in New York, Kidjo's most well-known songs include "Agolo," "We We," "Adouma," "Wombo Lombo," "Afirika," "Batonga," and her version of Miriam Makeba's "Malaika."

The terrace seats in the Lisner Auditorium are horrible! I left early because the are so crowded on leg room. I'm 5'7" tall and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of my. It was worse than a 16 hour coach flight. Ppl were up and down because they were uncomfortable. It was hard to enjoy the show in such misery.Diego El Cigala info • Nov 19 2014 star this tip starred
