“Africa’s premier diva” (Time), five-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest artists in music today – and is back in Aotearoa for one night only.
Celebrating a 40-year music career with 16 albums to her name, Kidjo is a creative force. Her joyous body of work vibes between West African traditions, Afrobeat, dancehall, funk, jazz and American R&B – all of it performed with a voice and stage presence of striking power and clarity.
Recipient of the prestigious Polar Music Prize in 2023 – the “Nobel Prize of Music” – Kidjo’s recent highlights include the powerhouse musical Yemandja, an Afrobeat reimagining of the Talking Heads’ Remain in Light, and the critically acclaimed album Mother Nature, made in collaboration with the next generation of leading African musicians.
Joining Kidjo is Tāmaki Makaurau-based kapa haka, Angitu. Energetic and full of vitality and excitement, this group will wow you with their spirited repertoire and exuberance.
