WOMADelaide 2019 – Angélique Kidjo

Concert or Performance

8 Mar 2019 to 11 Mar 2019

Performing Talking Heads’ “Remain In Light”

One of the great divas of our age, Angélique Kidjo takes on one of the iconic albums of the ‘80s and returns it to Africa. Talking Heads’ ground-breaking Remain In Light album was heavily influenced by the music of West Africa, and Kidjo reimagines the original with her own euphoric vocals, electrifying rhythms and explosive percussion. “We all know that rock music came from the blues and thus from Africa. Now is the time to bring rock back to Africa, connect our minds, and bring all our sounds to a new level of sharing and understanding,” says Kidjo.

“Transformative … raises the ante on every parameter of the original” – The New York Times
