Angelique Kidjo at Strathmore!

Known as “Africa’s premier diva” (Time Magazine), Grammy Award-winning humanitarian Kidjo offers an evening of high-energy international music, performing her trademark mélange of West African traditions, American R&B, funk, and jazz with her sensational band. Kidjo’s life story is one of triumph in the face of adversity as the Benin-born artist rose from poverty to become an international world music sensation. Her unwavering strength and resilience come through in her booming vocals and commanding stage presence. Kidjo inspires as much as she entertains, leaving her audiences feeling uplifted and empowered.
