Angélique Kidjo

This amazing image is from Kidjo's performance at New York City's Town Hall last week--my husband and I were present and it was fantastic. She's such a marvelous, vibrant, energetic performer--born for the stage. Although known for her African and deep global grooves, she sang new songs from her upcoming album OYO that is a tribute to her musical influences. Her take on Santana, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Otis Redding tunes were phenomenal--she even sang a cut from a Bollywood soundtrack--talk about fusion--we love Angélique!
