Time Magazine has called Angelique Kidjo “Africa’s premier diva”. As one of the continent’s most internationally celebrated female musical exponent, 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 that exemplifies unity, peace and diversity. This is the spirit of Africa.
