About Angélique Kidjo

Born in Benin, West Africa, Angelique Kidjo spices her funky, vocal-driven dance music with rhythmic and percussive details of her homeland. The distinctly African drumbeats on most of her albums, as well as the richness of her voice her study of the continent's many rhythms and the use of her native language, Fon--as well as English and French have all aided in making her an international superstar. She has collaborated with many artists including Roy Hargrove, John Legend, and Dianne Reeves, done television specials and recorded a concert album with the 110-piece the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg.
