Presented by the Prince & AEG Live
Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo performs an intimate show at the Prince Music Theater February 18th in support of her new album set for release January 28, 2014.
In an expansive career marked as much by extraordinary musical achievement as passionate advocacy for her homeland of Africa, “the undisputed Queen of African Music” (Daily Telegraph) has found many ways to celebrate the rich, enlightening truth about the continent’s women beyond the media spotlight.
On Eve, her highly anticipated Savoy Records debut named for her own mother as well as the mythical “mother of all living,” the Beninese born, singer/songwriter builds on this ever-evolving legacy with a 13-track, three interlude set of melodically rich, rhythmically powerful expressions of female empowerment. “On this recording I am letting the voices of the (African) women show their beauty to the world,” she adds. “Eve is all about showcasing the positivity they bring to their villages, cities, culture and the world.”
Kidjo, whose star-studded 2008 recording Djin Djin won a Grammy for Best Contemporary World Music Album and whose last studio recording Oyo was nominated in the same category, has enjoyed a long history of crossover collaborations with greats from the jazz and pop worlds—including Carlos Santana, Josh Groban, Peter Gabriel, Branford Marsalis, Dianne Reeves, Roy Hargrove and Alicia Keys.
