“I like to tell people that if you don’t know Angélique, you haven’t lived because there’s not one person who would be in her presence and not be changed.”Alicia Keys

“Angélique’s spirit is irrepressible, and she brings life to everything she touches.”Peter Gabriel

“The only thing bigger than Angélique Kidjo’s voice, is her heart. In this evocative memoir, Kidjo chronicles an inspiring life of music and activism, and raises a passionate call for freedom, dignity, and the rights of people everywhere.”Former President Bill Clinton

“In Africa’s new morning . . . Angélique Kidjo is the warmth in that rising sun.”—Bono

 “[Angélique] embodies her creed that girls can succeed if given a chance . . . . [She] is an inspiration to others with her message that, yes, the sky is the limit.”Desmond Tutu



Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest forces in African music, a creative energy with twelve international albums to her name. In 2007, her album DjinDjin received a Grammy Award. 

Angélique Kidjo is a Grammy Award winner, tireless campaigner for women’s health and education in Africa, a UNICEF Peace Ambassador and also, with a 20 year discography, 12 albums and thousands of concerts around the world, a gifted performer and prolific songwriter. On Eve, her latest album, and Savoy Records debut, named for her own mother as well as the mythical “mother of all living,” the Benin born, singer/songwriter builds on this ever-evolving legacy.  She has collaborated with the greats from the Jazz and Pop worlds—including Philip Glass, Peter Gabriel, Branford Marsalis, Dianne Reeves, Herbie Hancock, Bono, Josh Groban, and Alicia Keys as well as Bluesfest alumni Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, Dr John, John Legend and Joss Stone. Don’t miss the return of Angélique Kidjo to Australia - you can be sure her performances will be very special!
