Angélique Kidjo

West African singer and songwriter Angélique Kidjo, one of the most electrifying performers in the pop world today. With DJIN DJIN, her Grammy award winning release on Razor & Tie/Starbucks Entertainment, Angelique Kidjo comes home. The much-celebrated singer, composer, and performer began in the Beninese port village of Cotonou, where she launched her career at the age of six. The political turmoil in her country led her to relocate to Paris, the capital of world music, and then ultimately to New York City, where she now resides. Her striking voice, stage presence and her fluency in multiple cultures and languages won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. It also earned her access to humanitarians who sensed the passion in the words of her songs, resulting in her long-term dedication to global charity work.
