Angelique Kidjo Concert

Angelique Kidjo is one of the greatest forces in African music, a creative energy with eleven international albums to her name. In 2007, her album Djin Djin received a Grammy Award. Kidjo's most recent release, 2010's Oyo featuring John Legend, Bono, and Dianne Reeves, is a measure of her maturity. Born in the West African state of Benin, Kidjo is a tireless campaigner for women's health and education in Africa, a UNICEF peace ambassador, and a prolific songwriter.
