Angelique Kidjo

Hear this show now: | Add comments


Gifted singer Angelique Kidjo has always worked hybrid angles, mixing elements of her native Beninese music and tradition with soul, rock, Caribbean and other global influences. Her new release Djin Djin (Razor and Tie) is really two projects in one: Half of the CD is a series of mainstream-audience-seeking rock and pop collaborations with celebs like Peter Gabriel and Joss Stone. But the remaining tracks comprise her most stylistically African block of music in many years. Gearing up for her Wed. May 16 record release gig at B.B. King Blues Club (42nd Street between 7th and 8th Aves in Manhattan), Angelique talks about the new album, her background in a performing family in Benin, her work for international relief organizations and lots more.
