Angélique Kidjo


Angélique Kidjo

Smetana Hall in Municipal House,

“The only thing bigger than Angélique Kidjo’s voice is her heart.” says Former US President, Bill Clinton

From the small country of Benin, she has won awards and recognition around the world. Kidjo’s concerts are joyous and exuberant. With a richly powerful voice, commanding stage presence and a dramatic past, the Grammy Award-winning artist is an icon: ‘Africa’s premier diva’. 

Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest forces in African music, a creative energy with twelve international albums to her name. 

She is a symbol of Africa's creativity, energy and beauty. Her music is a unique blend of her own very West African heritage combined with funk, jazz and Latin music, and much more.
