Hailing from the quaint West African nation, Benin, 4X Grammy Award winner, Angelique Kidjo, has been a torchbearer for the Afro-pop movement for over 40 years. Her modern perspective of African music is adored the world over and she continues to inspire a new generation of Africa's greatest stars. She recently performed in Atlanta at the Rialto Center For The Arts and gave an electrifying show. I had the honor and pleasure of speaking with her about her illustrious career, her latest album on Mother Nature(Verve), being one of Africa's premiere music ambassadors and so much more. I'll be playing new music from her latest album on the Saturday evening edition of The Saturday night edition of S.O.U.L Of Jazz from 6-9pm EST on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
